rural health education sessions
Continuing Professional Development
A strong rural health workforce is the vital foundation for delivering healthcare excellence in all rural areas. Much of what we
do involves supporting health professionals working in a rural context. While rural life brings many benefits, professional isolation can be a significant challenge.
To help overcome these challenges our video education sessions have provided ongoing support and professional development to health professionals from as far north as Kaitaia, Stewart Island in the south and as far east as the Chatham Islands.
Mobile Health uses high quality video to deliver sessions based on your selected topic, and are delivered into your healthcare setting
The sessions are intended for nurses, GPs and other health professionals working in primary care, secondary care, residential care and community settings. Sessions can be as generic or specific as you need, sometimes relevant for the wider healthcare workforce in your community, while other sessions may be quite specific and only relevant to a small number of staff.

Knowledgeable and Interesting Presenters
Presenters are highly qualified and experienced nurses, doctors or other health professionals. Their specialty areas cover the full spectrum of rural healthcare including topics such as acute and chronic medicine, mental health, women’s health and emergency care.
Presenters will generally present from one of our studios in Christchurch, Dunedin, Hamilton or Auckland. We can facilitate presenters outside these regions when required.
Based on the preference of the rural sites we can access all private health networks in New Zealand including Vivid, Spark, Connected Health, WellSouth Vidyo. We also utilise a number of software platforms including Zoom.
We are happy to arrange sessions at any time during the day to fit around staffing availability and preference at the rural location. You are welcome to request a morning, lunch, afternoon, or evening sessions.
One Hour or One Day
For some locations we deliver individual sessions lasting 1-2 hours. For other locations we offer a 3-6 hour study day with a number of different presenters. We are happy to work with your schedule with ad-hoc or regular sessions.
We have a wide range of established presenters, each will tailor their presentation and discussion to your specific needs and requirements. Don’t let this list limit your imagination. If there are other topics or presenters which you would like then let our team know and we will endeavour to arrange that.
