The Scottish Rural Health Partnership, based in the Highlands, seeks to encourage the sharing of thoughts and ideas in order to find solutions to the many challenges of providing health care to remote and rural communities worldwide.
Our wide network of national and international colleagues involved in remote and rural healthcare, includes partners and stakeholders from academia, healthcare education, health and social care providers, the armed forces and Industry.
This year's conference is building on the success of the inaugural meeting of 2016 and has five principal themes relevant to remote healthcare:
- Emergency Management and Pre-hospital Care;
- Education and Professional Support;
- Community Engagement;
- Technology (including drones, robots, satellites and remote diagnosis and communication);
- Community Care (including physical and mental health and wellbeing).
The Rethinking Remote 2018 Conference will have a poster session and four free papers sessions, which will include four oral presentations in each session showcasing innovative work around the five themes of the conference.
We are inviting submissions which are examples of research, service development, international perspectives and multi-agency working. All abstracts that are accepted will entitle the author to register to the conference at the Early Bird discounted rate.
