Very important, particularly that AMS's are funded to support education for their workforce

Agreed that this is important but this needs to extend further to support, supervision and mentoring for these staff.

Needs strengthening to suggest standardised and systematic approaches to skills development in remote health services which are accredited, mandated and resourced to mee the demand. This is a real live issue where skills demand usually overrides skills available.

agree remote staff need access to supervision etc, plus standardized, systemic approaches
