Summary of "Creating Rural Allied Health Leadership Structures Using District Advisors: An Action Research Project Using Program Logic."

District advisors in five allied health disciplines were introduced in a local health district in rural Australia in 2013. These strategic leadership roles provide support to clinicians and managers. As there is little research exploring allied health leadership models from a strategic and operational perspective, the coordinated commencement of these roles provided opportunity to study the creation of this leadership structure.
