State Faculty e-Newsletters
Each RACGP state faculty produces an e-newsletter that is distributed primarily on a monthly basis.
E-newsletters deliver timely and relevant state-specific news, along with national and international medical updates and information regarding the health industry and general practice. Readers include GPs, academics, registrars, medical students, practice managers and nurses, as well as various business and government stakeholders in the general practice profession.
The circulation for each ranges from 720 – 10,000 depending on the RACGP faculty.
RACGP Rural (formerly the National Rural Faculty) provides advocacy and support for its members. Distributed bi-monthly, the Bush Alert newsletter provides relevant, interesting articles and updates to more than 15,500 readers. Bush Alert offers a unique way to reach GPs, registrars, students and academics that work or have an interest in rural and remote health.
RACGP Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health
RACGP Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health is committed to improving the health outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by advocating for culturally appropriate health delivery. The faculty’s e-newsletter is distributed bi-monthly to more than 8,000 members, and features project news, faculty and external events, and resources to help promote information sharing and partnerships within the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health sector.
RACGP Specific Interests
RACGP Specific Interests is charged with recognising the additional interest and expertise held by GPs in select areas of general practice. The faculty provides a vehicle for GP members practising in these areas to share information and knowledge by regular contact, as well as through the more formal continuing professional development channel where a need has been identified. The newsletter is distributed quarterly to more than 4,000 members. There are currently 27 specific interest networks and working groups, including addiction medicine, cancer and palliative care, obesity management and refugee health.
