2011 PHC Research Conference

Inspirations, collaborations, solutions

2011 PHC Research Conference - Inspirations, collaborations, solutions


The 2011 Primary Health Care (PHC) Research Conference was held in Brisbane from 13-15 July 2011, with a focus on Inspirations, collaborations, solutions.

Throughout this Conference, delegates experienced many inspirations through what was presented, what was discussed and how they could use this information to further their thinking.

The many collaborations that already exist in the primary health care research sector have resulted in excellent research over the years. Some of this was presented at this conference. At the same time, further collaborations were developed through the networking that was undertaken.

Through research, solutions arise. The meticulous collection, collation and analysis of data from research projects provide solutions to the many challenges that primary health care faces. These research findings were presented, discussed and debated at this conference. Research users came away with a host of solutions they could use, while researchers came away with ideas of research to answer further questions that arise when solutions are presented - a never ending story!
