Trekking without a map:the challenges of attracting allied health students to work in rural mental health services.
This presentation highlights the initial research findings of the Gippsland Mental Health Vacation School initiative which was developed to orientate Allied Health students studying in in Melbourne to employment opportunities in Gippsland Victoria, and considers the implications for future action designed to address the shortage of Allied Health practitioners in rural and remote mental health services.
Keith is seeking to meet with service providers and allied health professionals to hear their experiences of recruiting and retaining practitioners who work in the broad spectrum of mental health service.
He will be available for appointment in Geraldton from Monday 1/9/14 - Wednesday 03/09/14.
The Western Australian Clinical Training Network is co hosting a free networking event in collaboration with the Midwest Health Education & Training Alliance.
