Remote Primary Health Care Manuals LogoThis is a fantastic opportunity for nurses, doctors, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners, midwives, academics and allied health professionals to become part of the Remote Primary Health Care Manuals (RPHCM) voluntary team of Secondary Reviewers.

The RPHCM are a suite of clinical manuals designed by remote practitioners, for remote practitioners.

The vital role of secondary reviewers is to look at one or more updated protocols and comment on their readability, accuracy and practicality in remote clinics, contributing across all levels of the review process which is facilitated by the RPHCM Editorial Committee and project team.

The Remote Primary Health Care Manuals (RPHCM) project is launching the current edition of its RPHCM suite in ePublication format for the first time.  

This is an entirely new medium for the RPHCM, created in response to overwhelming user feedback.

The ePublication will benefit remote practitioners interested in accessing the clinical guidelines on their smartphones, tablets and eReaders. Manuals will be able to be downloaded and referred to off-line, essential for remote areas with unreliable internet connections. The RPHCM ePublication is being offered as one ‘Super-Manual’, one bundle containing all five current clinical practice manuals.  

  

 

A significant achievement for CRH was the recent signing of a book contract with Springer Publishing to produce the Handbook of Rural and Remote Mental Health, a definitive text on the provision of mental health services in rural and remote contexts.

The handbook being edited by Professor Carey along with colleagues at Charles Sturt University and the Australian Psychological Society covers a broad range of issues relevant to the provision of efficient and effective mental health services in rural and remote contexts from specific disorders to the social determinants of health.

A variety of national and international mental health experts from a number of different professions will be providing chapters for the book.
