RDWA Conference








All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts.
- William Shakespeare

This quote could be an analogy for health care and the role of a rural doctor. It is true that people come and go and our rural doctors play many parts during the course of their patients’ lives.

Our annual conference 2014 was an opportunity for you, our resident rural docs to take a break from the demands of your daily work, outpatients, inpatients, on call, running your practice, managing your staff, educating students, interns and registrars and participating in your communities.

This year’s conference “As you like it” had a clinical program based on the feedback we’ve received from you including the top five CPD topics identified from our most recent survey. It also provided an update on the health system from both a Commonwealth and State perspective.

There was a concurrent program on the Friday with a tailored student stream targeting Uni students from the three rural clubs.

Importantly it created the opportunity to catch up with old friends and to celebrate with the doctors who have completed 25 years of service to rural communities at the black tie dinner on the Saturday night.
