Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


According to NSW Women's Health Framework (2019) women in rural and remote areas of Australia face inadequate, inaccessible and poorer women's healthcare than urban women. The National Women's Health Strategy 2020-2030 listed maternal, sexual and reproductive healthcare, healthy ageing, chronic conditions and preventative health, mental health and health impacts of violence against women and girls as the top five key priority areas for women in Australia (Australian Government Departmernt of Health 2018). Aiming to identify women's experiences of using specific women's health services in rural and regional areas of New South Wales (NSW), the research project is being conducted by Flinders University researchers in conjunction with NSW women's health nurses.
