  • The role and function of crucial rural allied and scientific health clinical placement support roles,

  • Governance and location of crucial rural allied and scientific health clinical placement support roles,

  • Available and appropriate funding for crucial rural allied and scientific health clinical placement support roles, including a health economics led consideration of level of investment against intended outcome,

  • Strategies to increase collaboration of allied and scientific health clinical placement stakeholders across education, State and Commonwealth-funded health and private/NGO health sectors,

  • Strategies to enable sustainability and the embedment of a rural allied and scientific health clinical education model across rural South Australia; and
