Wounds Australia Rural and Remote Grant


We are pleased to announce the Wounds Australia Rural and Remote Grant is now open for Applications

Wounds Australia provides Grants to support our Members to develop their skills, in turn, to achieve Wounds Australia’s primary goal ‘to reduce the harm caused by wounds’.

The Wounds Australia Rural and Remote Grant of $2,000 is offered annually to support a rural and remote Wound Care Professional seeking to further develop their knowledge and network through work placement learning opportunities. For example, spending time in a metropolitan area wound centre, plastics, multidisciplinary foot centre etc. or with a clinical mentor with wound expertise.

Applicants must live and work in rural and remote locations of Australia (for example, outer regional, remote or very remote areas). Wounds Australia will use the Australian Government Rural, Remote and Metropolitan Area Classification and the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) as a guide to identify eligible locations.

Funds can be used towards travel and/or accommodation.

Applications are now closed. 

Applicants will be contacted by Friday 26 March 2021 to advise the outcome of their application.

The Wounds Australia Rural and Remote Grant recognises and honours Jan Rice.

Jan is well known for her outstanding contribution in the field of wound management and education, volunteering and supporting those in Australia, developing countries and disaster areas.

She is a Life Member and Fellow of Wounds Australia and has held many positions on both the Victorian state branch and National Australian Wound Management Association (AWMA), Executive Board Member of Wounds Australia and Chair of the 2018 Wounds Australia Conference.  

Her work has enabled communities to provide modern wound care, in novel and innovative ways, to suit the often-challenging environments. Jan recognised the need to not just provide wound care but to provide education to local health care workers to ensure ongoing care for clients with wounds. Her passion for education has resulted in her developing and delivering wound management courses nationally and internationally, in urban and remote settings with the aim of enabling local sustainable wound care services for those who need it. 

The Wounds Australia Rural & Remote Scholarship recognises Jan’s valuable work and aims to support wound management practitioners from rural, remote or disadvantaged communities in Australia to enable them to enhance their wound management knowledge, network, and develop skills to take back to their community.
