The issues are: rural medical training pathways; rural and remote nursing; rural allied health professionals; mental health workforce; medical specialist training; social determinants of health; health infrastructure; rural clinical simulation; health service management; quality and safety, looking at the role of individuals within healthcare teams and consumer perspectives.
