This year we have dedicated streams for our registrars and students that specifically relate to where they’re at in their training and studies. We’re bringing back the ever popular Suturing Workshop for students, and a session on planning and completing your Advanced Specialist Training (AST) for registrars. We also have dedicated themes for this year’s conference, two of which are Research in Policy and Practice, and Women in Health.

Notable highlights in the program stemming from these themes include ‘Codeine Rescheduling – evaluation of impacts and future implications for rural and remote practitioners and communities’ and, ‘Gender Bias in Rural Healthcare, Planning for Women’.
