AJOPS Blog: Exploring rural and regional issues
Rural landscape to represent rural and regional groups

Providing plastic surgery services in rural and regional areas of Australia and New Zealand has its own challenges. The Australasian Journal of Plastic Surgery (AJOPS) welcomes papers exploring these issues.

The practice of rural and regional plastic surgery in Australia and New Zealand has many challenges, including:

  • limited access to specialised surgical services
  • attracting and retaining skilled surgeons willing to work in these areas
  • the logistical difficulties of providing comprehensive healthcare in geographically-isolated region

If you are working on research looking at issues affecting the provision of plastic surgery in rural and regional areas, consider submitting a paper to AJOPS. You may be looking at ways to enhance the quality and accessibility in these areas, analysis of particular types of injuries more prevalent in rural and regional areas, or workforce issues.

Visit the AJOPS For Authors page for more information about the types of papers we accept.
