a knowledge transfer program funded by the Australian Government Department of Health.
RHCE2 is now in its last months of operation and the National Rural Health Alliance is holding a number of one-day roundtables to transfer knowledge and resources from RHCE2 to those who will be responsible for providing CPD in the future, including (but not restricted to) rural PHNs.

Having access to appropriate continuing professional development (CPD) is critical for health professionals of all disciplines working in rural and remote areas, as elsewhere. For the past five years the NRHA has been managing Stream 2 of the Rural Health Continuing Education program (RHCE2) on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Health. During this time 119 CPD projects have been supported, resulting in some useful understanding about ways in which the provision of CPD in rural and remote areas can be successfully completed, and in the production of some specific CPD resources for rural practitioners, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and allied health professionals.
