Tropical Health Orientation Manual

The Tropical Health Orientation Manual for health practitioners in Northern Australia (2020) (THOM) was published in partnership by Centre for Remote Health, PHN Northern Territory and HotNorth. The manual provides an introductory overview of clinically important conditions prevalent in tropical Australia. It was developed by health professionals with expertise and passion for their topics who collaborated to share their knowledge.
Health practitioners unfamiliar with tropical diseases and new to rural and remote communities need to be prepared for practice in Northern Australia. This preparation includes building knowledge of important tropical health conditions which impact on the high burden of disease in northern Australia. THOM is intended to provide background information about these conditions and is not a source of detailed guidelines for individual patient management.
