The impact of COVID-19 on healthcare workers in rural general medical practice in western Queensland is being explored. The aim of the project is to identify what elements of COVID-19 responses were a precursor to how rural general practices might proceed in the future and what kind of educational provisions are now required for ongoing support to healthcare communities.  Key staff in rural general practices in western Queensland will be interviewed.
