2013 Rural Health Continuing Education Stream Two Grants
The Rural Health Continuing Education Grants sub-program Stream Two (RHCE2) is one of a number of Australian Government measures to support health professionals in rural and remote Australia in accessing continuing education and training.
The RHCE2 program is funded by the Australian Government, through the Department of Health and Ageing, and administered by the National Rural Health Alliance (NRHA). For information on projects funded in the four Rounds of RHCE2 grants see http://rhce.ruralhealth.org.au/grant-allocation and http://rhce.ruralhealth.org.au/projects. Round 5 projects will be added in the near future. Currently there is a national evaluation of the RHCE2 program being undertaken by an Independent Evaluator. The evaluation final report with case studies is due in December 2013.
