The launch of the CRH Graduate Research book

Graduate research is an important aspect and a vital force of university based research. Experienced academic researchers and research students work collaboratively to enrich the research discourse, to maintain a continuing flow of research within a university and to enhance the impact of research nationally and internationally.

Our book entitled Graduate Research Papers in Rural Health is a manifestation of the contribution to research in rural health by graduate research students at the University of Tasmania. Most significantly it indicates their dedication to research inquiry and commitment to graduate research.

The Graduate Research Papers in Rural Health is available in hard copy, CD and online formats. It includes research papers in progress: some are at the early stage of research inquiry and others are at the final stage in which researchers reflect on and evaluate their research journeys. Individual papers deal with a variety of topics and use different research approaches in response to the increasing challenge of the complex nature of rural health research. The contributed papers reflect a collaborative research discourse including graduate research candidates, academic staff and supervisors, and networked health researchers.

…I am very pleased to provide some introductory comments to Graduate Research Papers in Rural Health. I am aware that this UTAS publication has been under consideration for some time and I know that it will have a significant and lasting impact both within the rural health research training landscape and in assisting to shape and encourage research activity within the field...

(Professor Carey Denholm, University of Tasmania)
