The aim of the Outreach Program is to increase access to medical, allied health and nursing services for people living in remote, regional and Aboriginal communities. This is accomplished through the development and support of health outreach services and also by building the capacity of the rural health workforce through upskilling.
Working in health outreach services can be a very rewarding and challenging experience for health outreach practitioners. In addition, health practitioners participating in the Outreach Program are eligible to claim for some of the costs associated with travel, accommodation and facility hire. Remuneration for many health outreach practitioners is derived from billings or a salary arrangement can be made for some professions and circumstances.
