professionals, community interventions, health promotion, nurses).Click on to the link for information about what a case study can be HSC318

Assignment 3 Case Study.pdf ;
2. Read the material you have located; and identify the relevant factors within the Wakerman definition below: Remote Health is an emerging

discipline with distinct sociological, historical and practice characteristics. Its practice in Australia is characterised by geographical,

professional and, often, social isolation of practitioners; a strong multidisciplinary approach; overlapping and changing roles of team

members; a relatively high degree of GP substitution; and practitioners requiring public health, emergency and extended clinical skills.

These skills and remote health systems, need to be suited to working in a cross-cultural context; serving small, dispersed and often highly

mobile populations; serving populations with relatively high health needs; a physical environment of climatic extremes; and a communications

environment of rapid technological change (Wakerman 2004; Defining remote health; Aust. J. Rural Health (2004) 12, 210–214)

The above mentioned definition describes many of the characteristics of remote health in Australia and outlines the health practice necessary

for the delivery of the service in the rural and remote context. When analysing the case study, you need to identify both the characteristics

(geographical, professional) and the context (working cross-culturally, small dispersed and often highly mobile populations with relatively

high health needs, and physical). You can also use this Case Study Matrix to identify the relevant factors within the Wakerman definition and

write up where they fit in the matrix. This should help you to analyse and write up the case study.
