Our Manuals continue to be developed by the user for the user.
They bring together experience and wisdom from topic experts, local specialists, and remote area practitioners through our team of volunteer reviewers and Editorial Committee.
We have partnered with a range of organisations to compile our resources portal. This provides access to training, health promotion and educational resources, that support health professionals to provide culturally-safe, accessible, and responsive healthcare in remote Aboriginal Health Service settings. Links are provided to:
- Printable resources from the Remote Primary Health Care Manuals
- Training and resources that encourage critical reflection on the concept of cultural safety and support collaborative and respectful work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities
- Health promotion resources (by topic area) developed specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
- Training programs that provide further education on remote primary health care
The Remote Primary Health Care Manuals acknowledges the Traditional Owners and Custodians, both past and present, at the various locations where the Manuals are used, and recognises their continued relationship and responsibility to these Lands and waters.
