The Scottish Rural Health Partnership is hosting their second ‘Rethinking Remote’ International Conference in Eden Court, Inverness on May 24/25 2018. The Partnership, based in the Highlands of Scotland seeks to foster thoughts and ideas sharing to find solutions to the many challenges of providing health care to remote and rural communities worldwide. Their wide network of national and international colleagues with involvement in remote and rural healthcare includes partners and stakeholders from academia, healthcare education, health and social care providers, the Armed Forces and Industry.

The Conference has five principal themes relevant to remote healthcare - Emergency Management and Pre-hospital Care; Education and Professional Support; Community Engagement; Technology (including drones, robots, satellites and remote diagnosis and communication); Community care (including physical and mental health and wellbeing), supported by a group of international speakers of national and world ranking status.

In recent years Inverness and the Highlands and Islands have experienced an unprecedented increase in growth and innovation in life sciences and remote healthcare. The academic environment is vibrant, matching the local geographical, cultural and scenic attractions which are so well known worldwide. We would be delighted to welcome you to Inverness at what is perhaps the finest time of the year to contribute and to learn as well as experience the advantages of living and working in this growing and thriving community, albeit with the challenges of remoteness on the doorstep.
