RuDASA uses a number of ways of communicating with its members. In the past we have relied on the website and the newsletters, but we now would like to make use of the RuDASA Forum to give feedback and stimulate discussion. The Forum is an email-based discussion group for mostly rural doctors, where a range of issues (from policy to clinical queries) are posted and discussed. RuDASA also has a lively facebook page. We also encourage you to try other forum and discussion groups such as those of HST and WONCA
This is a forum for consultation and discussion. It is a tool to promote the flow of clinical information between medical practitioners to improve patient care. The forum is an electronic discussion group or conference which will allow queries to reach the widest net, and for relevant information to be disseminated rapidly and cheaply. It has been developed due to a need to reduce the isolation of rural doctors and to help facilitate their access to specialist knowledge, information and limited resources in order to improve the quality of rural healthcare.
