About this survey

The Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) of Australia has been caring for country people for ninety years.

It is expected that as the Australian population ages, the prevalence of chronic disease will increase, and that there will be substantial service provision gaps in the bush. As a clinician in the field, we would like to know what you think are the most important areas of clinical need in the bush.

To find this out, we would like to invite you to complete a brief online survey. If you are 18 years of age or older and a health professional currently treating rural and remote patients, we invite you to participate in this survey. It should take about ten minutes of your time.

Your responses are voluntary and will be confidential. Individual responses will not be identified. All responses will be compiled together and analysed as a group.

We’ll release a public report on what we find in late October 2018. We’ll detail the findings through the RFDS, and key stakeholders.

If you have any questions about this survey, please call Dr Fergus Gardiner, Research Manager, at the RFDS on 02 6269 5512 or email him on Fergus.gardiner@rfds.org.au.

Thank you.
