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 - 29 October 2019
The workshops involve health students learning about the roles of other professions in the healthcare team, skills in constructive communication, effective team functioning, conflict resolution and patient centred care.
SQRH held its first SWIPE in the West Moreton area in collaboration with West Moreton Health and attracted 14 health students studying in Exercise Physiology, Physiotherapy, Social Work, Dietetic, Medical Imaging and Occupational Therapy.
Student comments included:
- "It was really useful to learn how to communicate in a team to develop strategies and plan for shared goals that are patient-focused"
- "Great to meet students from other disciplines and understand their profession and their role in the team"
- "Really enjoyed everyone sharing information about our roles"
