Remote and Rural Context

The Transition to Rural and Remote Practice Toolkit is currently under review and content may be out of date. The toolkit will be updated following the review.

When practicing in a remote or rural setting it is important you develop an understanding of the contextual factors that impact the health of your clients, and the ways services are delivered.

This section provided as brief overview of some of the elements that influence the remote and rural context. Read through each of the pages and think about these issues in the context of your community, and consider how this will change the way you provide services.
