How to Treat quiz: Minor farm injuries

Relevance to General Practice

Agriculture, forestry and fishing workers have the highest rate of workplace fatalities compared with other occupations in Australia. This is coupled with long distances to both health services and for ambulance assistance.
In Australia the medical system relies on rural GPs and ED personnel to provide frontline services in most of the areas where agricultural workers and farmers are based. It is incumbent on these centres to provide appropriate education on training and safety, so personnel are aware or of current treatment protocols and to ensure reporting of adverse events.
