CRANAplus ensures the deliv­ery of safe, high qual­i­ty pri­ma­ry health­care to remote and iso­lat­ed areas of Aus­tralia. We are a grass­roots, not-for prof­it, mem­ber­ship based organ­i­sa­tion that has pro­vid­ed over 30 years of edu­ca­tion, sup­port and pro­fes­sion­al ser­vices for the mul­ti-dis­­­ci­­pli­­nary remote health work­force. We work for all remote health pro­fes­sion­als, includ­ing nurs­es, mid­wives, Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Islander health pro­fes­sion­als and work­ers, para­medics, stu­dents, gen­er­al prac­ti­tion­ers, doc­tors, and specialists.

Here’s what we do at a glance:

  1. Provide educational courses and content to upskill the remote health workforce, certify them as per industry requirements, and ensure their safety.

  2. Develop and distribute resources that empower remote health professionals.

  3. Provide employment opportunities by communicating key information on career pathways and linking employees with employers via our employment page and weekly email newsletter.

  4. Unite the industry and celebrate its high achievers at our annual conference.

  5. Represent the interests of our members while advocating for positive change within the remote health sector across all levels of government.

  6. Give a voice to remote health professionals and students in our quarterly magazine.

  7. Support the remote health workforce through our resilience-building workshops, our Bush Support Line and mentoring program.

Our mem­ber­ship is made up of mul­ti-dis­­­ci­­pli­­nary health pro­fes­sion­als who work or wish to work in remote health or iso­lat­ed health. Our aim is to ensure that those who choose to work in this often demand­ing sec­tor are equipped with the nec­es­sary infor­ma­tion and skills to face the chal­lenges they may encounter and deliv­er effec­tive health care to remote and iso­lat­ed communities.
