Welcome to 2010 "Are You Remotely Interested?" Conference

>> Final program now available - Please visit Conference Program page.

In August 2010, Mount Isa hosts the fifth biennial Remote Health Conference. This event aims to bring together people involved in all aspects of health in remote Australia and will be opened by the Hon. Warren Snowdon MP, Minister for Indigenous Health, Rural and Regional Health and Regional Services Delivery.

The purpose of this year's event is to provide a forum for information exchange and debate about issues relevant to remote health with a particular focus on the following themes:
  • Clinical practice in remote areas;
  • Population Health including Indigenous health;
  • Workforce supply, education and training;
  • Research outcomes such as innovation in health service delivery.
As in previous years, this event will be held over two separate venues. Plenary sessions are to be held in the main auditorium of the Mount Isa Civic Centre, while concurrent sessions will make use of the Red Earth Hotel ballroom and conference facilities.

Both venues are located on West Street in the Mount Isa CBD, making travel for delegates between sites as easy as crossing the road.

Delegates will be free to attend whichever sessions are of interest to them, and these sessions will be detailed in the Conference Program once finalised.

The Conference Organizing Committee has applied to the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine and the Australian College of Ambulance Professionals for accreditation of the conference for continuing professional development points. If your professional group is not represented, please let us know and we may also be able to arrange points with your professional association.

Once again the Mount Isa Remote Health Conference promises to be a fantastic event and, through its small size and limited registrations, represents a great opportunity to establish networks with other remote health professionals.
