CRANAplus Remote Health Snapshot
As expected, it shows some sad facts about the health outcomes for people as a result of their geographical location, along with the impacts of the social determinants of health.
Of interest is the comparison of health workforce per 100,000 people, based on the remote / urban divide, where Nurses and Midwives are the only professions that have greater numbers based on the greater need! It’s a startling reminder that despite worse health, higher risks and greater need, our health workforce has woeful mal-distribution issues.
