Chronic disease in remote practice



This two day course is organised by the Centre for Remote Health, Flinders University and Charles Darwin University. It is designed for health professionals who work in remote practice and more broadly in remote regional primary health care services. The course aims to explore the prevention, detection and management of chronic disease from a public health and multi-professional perspective. It discusses a systems based approach to chronic diseases in a person and family centred model.

The course has a strong focus on communication - with people, patients and families, within the team and across services. It explores rapport and engagement with Indigenous clients, assessment, motivational interviewing, early warning signs and ongoing management for chronic diseases. The course is case study based and introduces a variety of health professionals that may contribute to the prevention and management of chronic disease in the remote context.

Registration is required no later than 4 weeks prior to course start date.
