Abstract

Overview:
There are multiple macro and micro challenges to sustaining a rural healthcare workforce and improving rural health (1,2,3).
Studies report that rural healthcare workers experience benefits over city workers like better job satisfaction and fewer stressors (4).
Successful strategies to improve the rural healthcare workforce include improving healthcare systems and working conditions (5).
Limited attention has been given to those already working in rural healthcare and what they think could be done to build the rural healthcare workforce.
Promoting the benefits of working in rural areas, alongside incentivising the move to rural areas may help build a stronger rural healthcare workforce.
