RMA22: Bold, Boundless, Beyond, Together
The goal of this RMA2022 is to improve rural health services by supporting rural generalists and appreciating their roles in the rural community. The conference will follow the theme: Bold, Boundless, Beyond, Together. These words will be used to divide the conference into four streams.
Stream 1: Bold
This stream will focus on celebrating the improved rural health outcomes and it will speak about the success stories of rural generalists. This first stream will deliver solution-focused sessions that can help improve rural practices and ideas about how to defend generalism across other specialties. This stream will also encourage a better understanding of rural policies and developments to support rural communities.
Stream 2: Boundless
This second stream will talk about innovative solutions busy clinicians and services can use. During this time of the pandemic, rural generalist services have become more essential. Unfortunately, this has caused burnout and exhaustion in all practitioners. To relieve this fatigue, solutions such as up-skilling the non-medical staff to manage other workloads, improving telehealth services, managing CPD requirements, and offering proper remote patient monitoring will be provided.
Stream 3: Beyond
This third stream will talk about the essentials of rural practice. Generally, this will be an interactive session on how to properly examine different patient populations and will cover non-procedural skills disciplines in population health, academic practice, and remote medicine. Information about health services being provided to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders will also be tackled.
Stream 4: Together
The last stream will talk about the importance of rural generalism and how to improve the well-being of the rural community. This session will talk about the strategies for self-care for both clinicians and the community, preparing and improving mental health, and how to support meaningful connections between the practitioners and the community.
Global Emergency Care Symposium 2022
A one-day conference about Global Emergency Care will be held this September 27, 2022, at Darwin Convention Centre. The theme will be: “From recovery to resilience: strengthening emergency care systems in the wake of disaster” and it will speak about how to offer medical services during emergency events.
Furthermore, the discussion will also include how the Covid-19 pandemic can be used as an opportunity to improve the services of general and rural practitioners during disasters.
Healthcare professionals providing emergency services are highly encouraged to join this symposium. For interested participants of the Global Emergency Care Symposium 2022, you can click this link to register.
