Subject outline

Despite popular images of rural life as wholesome and healthy, rural and remote area dwellers face significant health problems that are sometimes markedly different from those of urban people. In particular, health risks, access to health services and attraction and retention of professional staff are of great importance outside the major Australian cities. The unit aims to equip students to evaluate rural and remote health needs and service design issues, examine the policy frameworks and groups active in rural health, and develop practical strategies for addressing the problems identified.
