Central Australian Remote Aboriginal Health (CARAH) is the Rural Health Club situated in our country’s centre Alice Springs and a part of the National Rural Student Health Network (NRHSN).  Northern Territory PHN (NT PHN) invite you to apply for the CARAH Health LEADS – building rural and remote leadership. A program aimed at building critical rural leadership skills in emerging health professionals.

This is in collaboration with Rural Health Workforce Australia (RHWA); Centre for Remote Health (CRH); University of Tasmania (UTAS) and the Health LEADS Australia Framework.

This project supports the mantra “better leadership equals healthier communities” and affords local and external representatives to share their knowledge and experiences with emerging health professionals.

This event aims to:

  • equip rural health leaders to explore challenges and create environments or collaborative approaches to generate alignment between training, education, service delivery needs and innovation
  • increase knowledge of the social determinants of health, health inequalities and promotion, illness prevention, treatment and care, rehabilitation, community engagement, advocacy, collaborative and population health approaches
  • understand rural/remote living
  • explore the relevance of leadership within the context of rural, remote and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practice
  • increase understanding of patient journey outside the hospital setting and the role that broader sector/ NGO players can play in supporting client health and rural communities
  • increase leadership skills in collaboration.
