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
While nurses and midwives are celebrating the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife throughout 2020, the professions gained special prominence on their designated days of May 5 and May 12 respectively.
The SQRH team held virtual morning teas on both days with nursing and midwifery staff regaling the team with stories of their career highlights, travel across the world and the many rewarding aspects of their professions.
Staff also answered an online quiz about the history of nursing and midwifery, current practice issues and the role of nursing and midwifery clinical educators.
