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 - 10 August 2020
SQRH has continued with its Interprofessional Education (IPE) Community of Practice work and held a meeting in May with over 20 participants from all over Queensland.
A Community of Practice provides a valuable opportunity to create a learning community around an area of interest as well as helping to develop evidence-based practice and build personal and professional expertise.
Keynote presenter Ms Selina Taylor (Remote Pharmacy Academic), from the Mt Isa Centre for Rural & Remote Health, spoke about her work in IPE and advances made in the field of pharmacy that are applicable across other health professions.
SQRH Clinical Educator (Exercise Physiology) Steve Woodruffe also presented, outlining lessons learned while working at Darling Downs Health (DDH) creating a telehealth service for Toowoomba Hospital’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program.
Co-Chairs for the session, SQRH Interprofessional Practice Co-ordinator (South West) Toni Murray and DDH Allied Health Team Leader at the Cunningham Centre Vanessa Burge, agreed the presentations demonstrated that rural health professionals can have different approaches to IPE that bring learnings for all.
