The 2014 PHC Research Conference was held from 23–25 July 2014 at the National Convention Centre, Canberra. The theme, Integrating knowledge exchange to improve primary health care outcomes, sought to foster a culture in which knowledge exchange becomes automatic, a part of core business for everyone who wants to contribute to the improvement of primary health care outcomes. The value of any evidence is enhanced when the key stakeholders work together with a common purpose that encourages them to capitalise, from the outset, on their different perspectives, expertise and skills. Such a focus on partnerships and co-creation of knowledge can become a part of ‘the way we do things here’.

The PHC Research Conference is the place to foster such a culture of knowledge exchange. The Primary Health Care Research & Information Service (PHCRIS) understands the importance of bringing people with different skill sets together so they can have the initial face-to-face communications that underpin the development of trust and collaboration.
