Rural Appreciation Conference 2016

12th of August to the 14th of August

As part of NRHSN’s 21st birthday, Outlook Rural Health Club are hosting a 3 day multidisciplinary rural conference at wonderful Kilara Park.

Our exciting program includes multiple interactive workshops and symposia in addition to informative plenary sessions.
Examples include:
- ‘Bush first aid’
- Cultural competency training
- Climate change and rural health
- Emerging health professions: nurse practitioner, physician assistant, medical scribe, orthoptist
- SES, CFA & Ambos: First on Scene

It’s not all work though, we will be having an optional Astronomy Masterclass in the first night, and an NRHSN 21st birthday celebration including drinks and dancing afterwards.

All food is provided, with great wining and dining from local producers, including a special ‘taste of Heathcote’ on the Friday evening

Accommodation will be provided in a rustic shearing shed, with an inflatable mattress supplied, or if you would prefer, you can camp out in the wilderness in your own tent. Please bring your own bedding either way.

Killara park is a working wool growing, lamb breeding property which has been run by the O’Sullivan Family since 1858. It is located an hour and a half from the centre of Melbourne, and is centrally located in Victoria for easy access from all the rural sites.

Tickets are limited so get in quick! ONLY $50 for members and $65 for non-members. Tickets will be open for only one week from July 30th to August 5th, so get in quick!
