Director's Message

Welcome to 2020. NSW Regional Health Partners is still a new organisation but having an impact – by accelerating the translation of evidence into practice to improve the health and wellbeing of regional, rural and remote communities.

This year, we’ll be bringing you a lot more stories and results from our funded projects. We’ve started sharing messages around end of life decision making with the community and will continue this in conjunction with news about our end of life projects. We’re also working at the national level, especially on advocacy for investment in rural medical research and on the need for resources for local level evaluation in health services.
