Whether you are looking to work in a remote community or simply want to expand your knowledge in remote and Indigenous health, Remote Area Health Corps (RAHC) has created valuable training for health professionals.
In an effort to strengthen primary health care services in the Northern Territory, RAHC works in close collaboration with the Aboriginal Medical Services (AMSs) and the Northern Territory Department of Health (NT DoH) to determine the appropriate skills and experience for nurses to facilitate safe and successful placements in a remote primary health care setting in the Northern Territory (NT).
It has been brought to our attention that some Health Professionals are not following the CARPA guidelines when initiating treatment or reviewing patients or at a minimum not seen to actively consult the CARPA Manual.
Please be aware that it is essential to follow the CARPA Manual when you are consulting with a patient.
As we mark National Close the Gap Day, Remote Area Health Corps (RAHC) is proud to announce that it has already filled another 500 short-term health professional placements in remote Indigenous communitie
