Through our diverse research programs at La Trobe Rural Health School we seek to:
- understand the needs and challenges of rural/regional communities
- impact and improve rural community health and wellbeing
- transform rural and regional health care.
Our research is focused around the key areas of rural health, chronic health conditions and mental health and well being. We are particularly committed to conducting research with populations who are vulnerable and/or marginalised in some way.
We have active research programs across all eleven disciplines within the La Trobe Rural Health School. The research teams below demonstrate some of our current research strengths.
