Position papers

The NRHSN advocates on a number of issues relevant to the future rural health workforce and these are highlighted in our Network position papers. Position papers are statements of support for a specific topic and provide the rational and recommendation behind the position. Our position papers are regularly updated and new ones developed as needed. All position papers are developed following consultation with general NRHSN members, Rural Health Club representatives, NRHSN portfolios and the NRHSN Executive, and have become official policy following endorsement by the NRHSN Council.

Please note: Any papers developed before January 2018 were administered by Rural Health Workforce Australia and not the current administrative body (the NSW Rural Doctors Network). If you have any enquiries about these papers, please email executivecommittee@nrhsn.org.au or call 02 8337 8100
