Evaluation of the Rural Health Multidisciplinary Training Program

KBC Australia is currently working on this project.

KBC will undertake an evaluation of the Rural Health Multidisciplinary Training Program over a 12 month period. The purpose of the evaluation is to assess the extent to which the current design and delivery of the program is achieving the program’s aim of improving the recruitment and retention of medical, dental, nursing and allied health professionals in rural and remote Australia. In addition, the evaluation should consider the benefits to local health delivery from engagement in teaching and training through the RHMT program.

The findings of the evaluation will be used to inform future program design, as well as the government’s broader policy approach with regard to training the future rural health workforce.
