Abstract

The Remote primary health care manuals are a set of manuals intended to support high-quality clinical practice in primary health care in central, northern and remote Australia. The manuals are used by health care workers including: doctors, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health practitioners, remote area nurses, midwives, nurse practitioners, and allied health professionals.

The Remote primary health care manuals include the:

  • CARPA standard treatment manual
  • Minymaku Kutju Tjukurpa: women's business manual
  • Clinical procedures manual for remote and rural practice
  • Medicines book for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners
  • reference book for the Remote primary health care manuals.

These manuals provide evidence-based, best practice protocols tailored to the needs of clinicians, patients and remote Indigenous communities, providing primary health care. They are unique in that they incorporate both best practice evidence and the practice wisdom of remote practitioners.

These manuals are:

  • designed for remote practice
  • current and evidence-based
  • in plain English, easy to access
  • current and evidence based
  • culturally appropriate.

A distinctive feature of these manuals is that they were developed by practicing remote health clinicians and continue to be reviewed and updated using this 'by the user for the user' guideline development model.This model brings together the collective experience and wisdom of topic experts, local specialists and remote area clinicians who provide both evidence reviews and expert advice.
