Martin T London, John G Burton
Compared to Australia, substantial rural-based clinical education in New Zealand started small and still has some way to go if it is to fulfil its potential in workforce retention and recruitment to under-served areas. The authors share some of their experiences in rural medical education and then speculate on how it could develop. They discuss the merits of a clinical school composed of a dispersed network of rural sites, which provide and coordinate rural health education.

This review article reports on the contribution of university Departments of Rural Health and Rural Clinical Schools to the development of rural health and the rural health workforce and is set at the Australian Government's university Departments of Rural Health and Rural Clinical Training and Support Programs. The main outcome measures include educational infrastructure, clinical academic workforce, student numbers, community engagement, research outputs, rural health and workforce outcomes. As a result, university Departments of Rural Health and Rural Clinical Schools have established a substantial geographical footprint covering most of the rural and remote populations and regions across Australia...

People diagnosed with mental illness have relatively poor physical health and die earlier than their counterparts in the general population. People living with mental illness in rural Australia have three times the risk of premature death than the total population. This article reviews recent international, Australian and New Zealand research, identifies the increased risk of early death of people living with mental health issues in rural settings and looks at the need for policy and practice responses. The 'Equally Well' national initiatives are described in Australia and New Zealand, which seek to systematically address this inequity as a matter of priority...

Paramedic services in Australia and New Zealand (Australasia) share many characteristics, with both offering versions of the Anglo-American system of emergency medical response. Their industry and professional bodies are transnational and as a result have similar industry standards and professional expectations. The major difference been the two countries is their sources of funding, with Australian paramedic services generally receiving more government funding than those in New Zealand. Both countries provide a range of services that use a mix of volunteer and professional staff and employ state-of-the-art communications and medical technology to provide high-level clinical services...

OBJECTIVE: To propose a framework for examining both the spatial equity and sustainability of GP services. DESIGN: A conceptual discussion based on a systematic literature review of spatial equity definitions and methods. SETTING: Improving the spatial equity of health services is a key step in achieving health equity. Health systems should contribute to achieving health equity and maintain equitable services into the future. The GP services are a key component of primary health care, which often aims to promote health equity...

From the perspective of one rural New Zealand Māori community involved in a health service research study, this article describes 'Te Tomokanga' - an established local Māori model of engagement. This model served as an essential guide for researchers coming into the community and at the same time, enabled the community to take ownership of the research process. This may have applicability to research in rural Indigenous communities elsewhere.

This article describes two strategies that have strengthened the capacity and effectiveness of rural health advocacy in Australia over the past nearly three decades. The first is the development of the National Rural Health Alliance, an organisation that grew from strategic efforts to develop relationships between rural and remote health practitioners and organisations. The second is the development, organisation and use of data and evidence to highlight rural health needs. There has been important synergy between these two streams of activity, with research and evidence providing the tools and the National Rural Health Alliance providing the strategy and techniques to influence the rural and remote health care agenda...

OBJECTIVE: This article describes the rationale for, and development of, an evidence-based rural typology as the basis for an incentive scheme to improve medical workforce retention. This case study describes the key factors associated with ensuring that research evidence is translated into rural health policy and program implementation. DESIGN: Case study. SETTING: Rural and remote Australia. RESULTS: The development and implementation of the Modified Monash Model in Australia demonstrates some of the key facilitators of knowledge exchange...
