Transition Toolkit to Remote and Rural Practice

The Transition to Rural and Remote Practice Toolkit is an online resource designed to support allied health professionals with establishing a practice in a rural or remote setting. The resource bridges the gap between training and becoming a rurally based allied health service provider.

The resource supports allied health service providers through:

  • extending university training
  • developing an understanding of local orientation processes
  • assisting with maintaining a long term presence in rural communities
  • outlining the benefits of making the transition to remote and rural practice

The Transition Toolkit consists of five modules that can be navigated like a book at the bottom of the page:

  • Remote and Rural Context
  • Remote and Rural Practice
  • Skills and Competencies
  • Orientation, Development and Support
  • Clinician Stories
  • Project Summary

The Transition Toolkit includes a series of online learning modules that relate to topics contained as part of the toolkit and include:

  • Communication in Remote and Rural Practice
  • Confidentiality and Professional Boundaries
  • Cultural Safety
  • Healthcare Prioritisation in Remote and Rural Practice
  • Primary Health Care
  • Remote and Rural Outreach
  • Self Care
  • Translating Evidence Based Practice
