Transition Toolkit to Remote and Rural Practice

The Transition to Rural and Remote Practice Toolkit is currently under review and content may be out of date.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.

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

  • Cultural Safety
  • Healthcare Prioritisation in Remote and Rural Practice
  • Primary Health Care
