RHC2022: Learning, Adapting, and Thriving

Thursday 1st to Saturday 3rd September

Information for Abstracts & Ideas for Topics

The Covid-19 Pandemic posed immense challenges on our health services and us as people. This forced us to learn, adapt and thrive – and we believe that in rural areas we are one step ahead of the rest. This is achieved by innovative and passionate health professionals working with our communities. We are used to dealing with crisis, allocating limited resources, strengthening systems, thinking outside the box, distant learning, and being connected to families and showing compassion until the end of life. 

At this conference we will have a change to share our accomplishments, learn through our challenges and be inspired to thrive. In drawing up your abstract, please align it as far as possible with the overall conference theme “Learning, Adapting and Thriving”. The idea is to share how rural health workers coped with rural challenges including the pandemic and others: how they adapted, but also how they learnt, or engaged with educational programmes, in order to thrive. 

We welcome abstracts on:

Rural Teamwork

Health Systems Management & Policy

Community engagement & end users voice

Clincial Practice
