Caring for country kids conference



Children's Healthcare Australasia (CHA) and the National Rural Health Alliance (NRHA) are hosting a two day event focusing on the provision of quality healthcare for children and young people living in rural, regional and remote communities across Australia.

The event will provide learning and networking opportunities to public and private healthcare providers, families and carers, and interested people from health-related sectors such as rural education, transport and housing in rural, regional and remote areas.

The Conference will focus on placing rural and remote children and their families at the centre of care, keeping them healthy, and enhancing the patient journey from primary through secondary to tertiary care - and back again. The goal is to improve access for country kids to the right care, in the right place, at the right time - by building the capacity of the rural, regional and remote health workforce team to care for children locally. It will consider healthcare outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people, and children with chronic and/or complex health needs, emergency care and mental health care.

Potential sponsors and exhibitors are encouraged to contact the NRHA.
