Centre for Remote Health
The Centre for Remote Health (CRH) has established a research program which seeks to be responsive to community and health service needs, with an emphasis on collaborative effort and capacity building. CRH has particular strengths in remote health services research, health services planning and development. CRH staff seek to build partnerships with communities and organisations so that research activities are guided by community knowledge in order to improve the health of people in remote regions of Australia. One of CRH's primary aims has been to support communities to benefit not only from the results of research but also from involvement in the research process.

Research activities within the Centre for Remote Health have been characterised by a broad range of research topics and collaborations with community based organisations and government agencies. The strong partnerships set the foundation for appropriate growth of our research efforts in order to continue to strike a balance of shorter, contracted research and sustained longer term research programs.

Invitation for Remote Health Professionals to be interviewed
CRANAplus Bush Support Services together with the Centre for Remote Health are currently conducting a study aimed at improving the management of remote health professionals who have experienced a traumatic event through the development of best practice guidelines, education workshops, and materials. The first part of the study is to gather information about what may have helped or what may have hindered your recovery. We would also like your feedback about what strategies you feel would improve the management of health professionals who have experienced a traumatic event.

Invitation for Remote Health Managers to be interviewed
CRANAplus Bush Support Services together with the Centre for Remote Health are currently conducting a study aimed at improving the management of remote health professionals who have experienced a traumatic event through the development of best practice guidelines, education workshops, and materials. We would like to interview managers of remote health professionals about your experiences of managing staff who have experienced a traumatic event to identify factors such as support/constraints/resources that have influenced your management of the individual and the event. We also would like your feedback about what strategies you feel would improve the management of health professionals who have experienced a traumatic event.

The interviews will be conducted by a person experienced in trauma, but who is not part of the research team. All interviews will be confidential and only de-identified information will be published.

ARC funding for a three year project investigating the impact of Fly In Fly Out (FIFO) health services in remote communities.

Funding has commenced for a three year project. The project is a collaboration between a number of universities, University Departments of Rural Health, and the NT Health Department. It is an exciting project that will provide new knowledge to our understanding of some of the short and longer term consequences of the increased reliance on a FIFO workforce in remote Australia.
