P209 Global Remote and Rural Healthcare - Quarterly Webinar

In November 2020 Bridge2Aid hosted a 2 day conference on ‘Remote and Rural Healthcare – How Can we do it Better?’. In advance of the next conference in November 2021 we are running a series of short webinars to continue the exploration of this important topic  

This first recorded webinar features four international speakers, covering the topics of frugal technology and multi-modal teaching methods, student-centred and context-sensitive education to prepare health professionals for challenging contexts, and the importance of compassion in delivering support to those in need.

We strongly believe that there is much to be learned from the experiences of others in delivering and researching any aspect of providing healthcare in remote and rural areas and we hope you will join us for this event.
