SQRH has been established to increase rural health training opportunities for nursing, midwifery and allied health students and health professionals in regional, rural and remote communities.
We are developing the health workforce where it is needed most.
SQRH supports rural health professionals and students to engage in high quality rural health research.
Date - 8 April 2020
The start of 2020 has been a challenging one for the world at large, and particularly those in health care.
With the COVID-19 situation changing rapdly, we are all working hard to ensure that we are keeping up to date with the latest information and implementing strategies to flatten the curve.
For SQRH we have implemented a number of strategies in our workplaces, clinics and student accommodation to ensure that we are minimising the chances of exposure to the virus. We are also rapidly shifting gear to ensure that all training sessions offered by SQRH are available through virtual means and we are readying ourselves to deliver more telehealth services to our Health and Wellness Clinic participants in the event of more stringent social distancing measures.
Despite the challenges ahead I am pleased to report that the construction of the new SQRH Training Facility in Charleville commenced on 16 March. This is a significant milestone for SQRH and all going well, the building will be completed by October. Once complete, the facility will be a major outback training hub for the next generation of health professionals working in the bush. It is a privilege to be part of such an important initiative to support our rural and remote communities well into the future.
