Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Remote area populations have extensive and unique health care concerns,which require dedicated and well prepared health professionals to manage. Flinders University of South Australia School of Nursing and Territory Health Services, Central Australia Region have collaborated in establishing what is believed to be a first for undergraduate nursing students in Australia. In March last year, the School of Nursing appointed Kerry Taylor as the first lecturer in nursing based in Alice Springs. Flinders University will be establishing a Centre for Rural Health in Alice Springs with the assistance of Commonwealth funding.Kerry is strategically placed to initiate and support collaborative research and publications, working as a conduit between Central Australian clinicians and Flinders University School of Nursing academics. Unlike the 1995 two-year program conducted by the University of Sydney, this project placed the students in the setting rather than bringing Remote Area Nurses to speak with students (Murphy et al 1995)
