About the Forum

The Lishman Health Foundation has collaborated with Rural Health West, Edith Cowan University, St John of God Bunbury Hospital, WA Country Health Service and WA Primary Health Alliance to facilitate a South West Health Research Forum.

In a first for the South West, the forum will bring together research leaders, researchers and health practitioners from Australian universities and South West clinical settings to share current rural and regional health research  activity and explore potential opportunities to grow health research in the region.

We are fortunate to have Professor Gary Geelhoed, Executive Director WA Health Translation Network as the lead facilitator for the forum.  Clinical Professor Alan James, Chair Busselton Population Medical Research Institute, will present along with other researchers from WA Universities, Monash University and the University of Newcastle.

The forum will provide the opportunity for delegates to learn, mentor, contribute and network.

Health practitioners and researchers currently undertaking research have the opportunity to present a printed poster at the forum, and to engage attendees in rich discussion of their research during lunch and afternoon tea.  Please see full details under the Program Tab

Who should attend?

We encourage health practitioners and researchers currently undertaking research and those that would like to become involved in research to make the most of this opportunity.
  • Clinicians and health professionals
  • Researchers
  • Early stage investigators
  • Academics
