Management Program

CRANAplus understands the challenges remote managers experience on a daily basis dealing with staff at a distance, leading change, being responsible for the delivery of safe, quality care. Whilst there is a gamut of leadership and management programs, there are none that address the contextualisation of remoteness and associated challenges managers experience in remote health services.


The Remote Management Program is designed to enhance and broaden the manager’s existing expertise regarding leadership and management, clinical governance, and project management underpinned by an action learning approach.

Who is this course for?

Managers, acting managers and aspiring managers who work in a remote health service setting.
