The 2011 Primary Health Care (PHC) Research Conference, held in Brisbane 13-15 July 2011, focused on Inspirations, collaborations and solutions.

The conference was convened by the Primary Health Care Research and Information Service (PHC RIS) and supported by both the Australian Association of Academic Primary Care (AAAPC) and the Australian Primary Health Care Research Institute (APHCRI, based at ANU), it was funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing. The program was a blend of plenary sessions, workshops, symposia, poster and paper sessions, with influential and inspiring presenters from both Australia and overseas.

Research findings were presented, discussed and debated at this conference. Through research, solutions arise – the collection, collation and analysis of data from research projects provide solutions to the many challenges that primary health care faces.  Research users came away with a host of solutions they could use, while researchers came away with ideas of research to answer further questions that arise when solutions are presented. Further collaborations were developed through the networking that was undertaken. Delegates experienced many inspirations through what was presented, what was discussed and how they could use this information to further their thinking.
