ACRRM RG Foundation Skills: Population Health
This course is one of five courses in the ACRRM Rural Generalist Foundation Skills series:
Rural and remote context
Self-care and wellbeing
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health
In recent years there has been an increasing emphasis both in government policy and amongst medical organisations on using a "population approach" in both the prevention and treatment of illness. So, what is this population approach? What evidence is there that it works? And what does it mean to rural or remote general practitioners? These are some of the questions that this online course aims to answer.
The materials in this course were developed in partnership with Queensland Country Practice (QCP), Darling Downs Hospital and Health Service.
QCP has agreed to its wider release to contribute to the broad training curriculum delivered through ACRRM and the potential benefit to rural doctors in training in other areas.
