WHRN Research Conference Abstract Submissions


The Western NSW Health Research Network (WHRN) Conference brings together researchers and health organisations from across the regions who are passionate about improving the health and health services of rural communities.

 

The theme of the 2017 conference is “Achieving equality in rural health outcomes”. Attendees are strongly encouraged to present on recent new ideas for rural research, current, completed or translated projects. The presentations provide an excellent opportunity to share your research ideas and findings with peers, receive constructive feedback in an informal environment, and identify and invite potential collaborators to contribute to your project.

 

If you would like to present at the upcoming meeting, please submit an abstract using the following guide. Please choose the Abstract guideline to suit your research stage.

 

The research stage is defined for presentations for the following days.

 

Day One: Colloquium for Emerging Research 

This forum will be a unique opportunity for the presentation of emerging rural research and for researchers to share and discuss ideas in a supportive and collegial environment.

 

Day Two: Scientific Symposium

The forum will include presentations of completed or translated rural research projects.
