The October issue of the Australian Journal of Rural Health is now available.
Several articles focus on workforce issues: the regional distribution of private dental practices and dentists; recruitment and retention of rural physicians; pharmacists in Queensland communities; and new‐graduate physiotherapists’ perceptions of their preparedness for rural practice.
A quality improvement report finds that Aboriginal dental assistants can safely apply fluoride varnish in regional, rural and remote primary schools. There’s also a LGBTQI+ perspective on access to health services.
Colette Colman, Alliance Director of Policy and Strategy Development raises some important issues in a piece looking at targeting economic stimulus for healthier regions.
