The ARA Rural Rheumatology Committee hosted an RACP webinar on the 12th July 2021. 

Rural patients continue to struggle to receive optimal medical care in 2021 and all specialties face the same dilemmas in providing optimal rural care. This webinar outlines how Rheumatologists attempt to address rural medical service provision inequities. Each speaker presents their practice of rural service provision both as physicians visiting rural areas and those living and working in rural Australia. A practical approach outlining how easy it is to set-up a rural clinic is also discussed.   

Speakers: Dr Simon Burnet, Dr Claire Barrett, Dr Sabina Ciciriello, Dr Joel Riley and moderated by Dr Louise Ward
