 Collaborative research

  • Research projects previously undertaken on Snapshot on clinical supervisors and 10 year achievements of Rural clinical schools telephone survey
  • Aim is to now undertake research on Impact data
  • Suggestion to task the Policy group with coordination of this and coming up with a process and form of trying to engage people, have regular meetings then send out ideas on how this might work
  • Joint projects with students, given the increase in demand for student project
  • Research group should look at ways that FRAME can integrate with other entities that have a research focus to help spread the word about rural research opportunities
  • FRAME potentially in competition with some of the Departments of General Practice so need collaboration to ensure a smoother journey in being able to integrate resources
