In 2000 the Research Capacity Building Initiative (RCBI) was established to support University Departments of General Practice and Rural Health to provide training and support in primary health care research, particularly among local practitioners. This initiative continued until 31 December 2011.
Below are some of the outputs of this initiative.
Researcher Development Program
The Researcher Development Program (RDP) was initiated under RCBI. It was established to increase the number and range of people with knowledge and skills in primary health care evaluation and research. Financial support was provided for placement holders to undertake primary health care research and to gain access to existing research support. RDP targeted researchers from a broad range of backgrounds.

Synthesis of RCBI Annual Reports
From 2002-2009 PHCRIS collected data from the RCBI annual reports that were submitted to the Australian Governement Department of Health. This data is available on the RCBI webpage.
A brief and simple fact sheet series about research. Compiled by the University of New South Wales as part of the NSW Primary Health Care Research Capacity Building Program, funded by the Australian Government Department of Health.
SARNet Snapshots is a two-page resource series comprising resources developed from the SARNet online discussion forum.
NSW PHC Short Course on Research Methods Resources
The NSW Primary Health Care Research Capacity Building Consortium conducted a Short Course on Research Methods for eligible early career primary health care researchers, as part of a state-wide collaborative approach to research capacity building. The Short Course introduced early career primary health care researchers to both qualitative and quantitative research methods. To facilitate learning, we have made presentations from this event available on our website.
Writing for Publication Seminar
In March 2007 the Australian Journal of Rural Health (AJRH) sponsored a seminar in the pre-conference program of the 9th National Rural Health Conference. Presentations made at the seminar are available from the National Rural Health Alliance website.
