Conducting A Rural Practice Review

In this module, you will learn about what’s involved in conducting a rural practice review.

The module was funded by the Department of Health and Ageing under the Rural Health Continuing Education (RHCE) sub-program Stream One to support rural dermatologists.

The RHCE grant enabled a number of rural dermatologists to visit the practice of another rural colleague. The module contains case studies from five of these dermatologists as well as information about how to conduct your own rural practice review.

Telehealth Technology Workshops

In 2015, a consortium of specialist medical colleges, led by the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) and including the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia (RCPA), the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO), and the Australasian College of Dermatologists (ACD), delivered workshops at Port Macquarie and Hobart on telehealth.

Each workshop provided ‘hands on’ opportunities for specialists to explore telehealth technologies and to learn from their peers. The workshops were delivered in two parts:
1. Presentations from specialists on how they use telehealth
2. A demonstration of the various technologies and an opportunity to experiment with them.

The featured technologies included videoconferencing setups, imaging software, cameras, 3D printers and more.

Experimenting with these technologies was deemed to be an important step in increasing specialists’ confidence and excitement about telehealth.
