CARPA Standard Treatment Manual 6th Edition
Centre for Remote Health

Carpa Standard Treatment Manual 6th EditionMany practitioners begin work in central or northern Australia without remote-specific training, and are expected to provide a wide range of clinical services in an unfamiliar and often challenging environment.

The CARPA Standard Treatment Manual (STM) was developed by the Central Australian Rural Practitioners Association (CARPA) in response to a critical need to support remote clinicians.

The CARPA STM protocols cover ‘what to do’ in remote settings for conditions that:

  • Are common, high risk, unfamiliar, or dangerous — the daily, the deadly, and the daunting
  • Have important public health implications
  • Need coordinated, standardised care
