Pathway to Remote Professional Practice Guide
Pathways to Remote Professional Practice conveys the preparation required and describes the landscape of professional practice in the context of remoteness. It also includes the standards that guide and shape practice for the expected level of health care to remote and isolated communities across Australia. As the predominant remote health professionals are nurses, midwives, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health practitioners/workers, Pathways to Remote Professional Practice is intended for those who are interested in advancing their careers as remote health professionals. Particular sections are written specifically for nurses and midwives aspiring to become Remote Area Nurses/Midwives.
