The importance of a return on investment from research formed the heart of the knowledge exchange theme for the 2014 PHC Research Conference. It set the framework for stimulating and productive discussions for over 450 delegates from 165 different organisations who attended from across Australia, the UK, New Zealand, Canada, Iran, Japan and Hong Kong.

The online evaluation was completed by 187 (42%) delegates who appreciated the program content, new ideas and networking opportunities. The conference was seen as a ‘great learning and sharing opportunity’ as well as an ‘enjoyable but professional conference, very welcoming’. As one respondent noted, ‘if engaged in PHC research this is the best conference to attend’.
