The Primary clinical care manual: 8th edition is a clinical reference guide developed by Queensland Health and the Royal Flying Doctor Service. The manual is intended to be the current principal clinical reference and policy document for health professionals working in rural and remote Queensland. It contains health management protocols that support the advanced practice of authorised Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers (AHW), scheduled medicines (rural and isolated practice) registered nurses, authorised sexual and reproductive health registered nurses, and Immunisation program authorised registered nurses. These health management protocols set out the circumstances, conditions and restrictions under which medicines listed in the drug therapy protocols can be used.

This clinical reference guide is suitable for use in emergency departments within rural and remote health facilities where there are limited diagnostic resources. It includes sections on:

  • patient presentation and assessment
  • emergency
    • resuscitation
    • cardiovascular and neurological
    • trauma and injuries/fractures/dislocations/sprains
    • acute wounds/burns
    • poisoning
  • mental health and substance use
  • sexual and reproductive health
  • paediatrics
  • immunisation.
