The Department of Health has commissioned an independent evaluation of the RHMT program to be completed by mid-2020. The evaluation will examine the extent to which the current design and delivery of the RHMT program is achieving the program’s aim of improving the recruitment and retention of medical, nursing, dental and allied health professionals in rural and remote Australia. The evaluation will also consider the benefits to local health delivery from engagement in teaching and training through the RHMT program.
Kristine Battye Consulting Pty Ltd (trading as KBC Australia) was selected to undertake the evaluation which will involve a mixed methodology encompassing both qualitative and quantitative methods. The evaluation includes an extensive consultation process.
An Expert Reference Group has been established to provide advice to the evaluator and the department throughout the evaluation.
