The Department of Rural Health has brought together education, mental health and medical experts to discuss the profound impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had in rural and regional settings.
Residents of Australia’s remote regions had only just survived the devastating bushfires in early 2020 before COVID-19 hit. They now have a challenging recovery, dealing with the overwhelming impact of both crises. The COVID-19 rural health webinar series provides an opportunity for health professionals in a regional setting to hear from leading university academics on a wide range of topics.
The webinar series will continue monthly throughout 2020. Updates on upcoming events and recordings can be viewed online.
