2012 PHC Research Conference

Inform, influence, implement: Research improving policy and practice

PHC Research Conference - Pivotal workplace in primary health care research

The 2012 Primary Health Care Research Conference: Inform, influence, implement: Research improving policy and practice provided a forum where delegates were inspired with new ideas and updates on recent research across Australia. Many new collaborations were initiated through the networking that was undertaken and existing collaborations were cemented. Researchers and research users came away with a host of solutions they could implement in their work.

Delegates wanted to obtain new knowledge, learn more about health reform, network, collaborate and gain inspiration which would inform their research. Others were attracted by the high quality research.

The Primary Health Care Research Conference keeps improving, and one factor is the close attention given to the evaluation comments received from delegates each year. Many respondents expressed appreciation of the excellent organisation, the friendly 'green' PHCRIS staff, the food, and the sponsored delegate positions.

The conference evaluation was done entirely online in keeping with our green policy. The response rate was 40%.
