Clinical Competency Rubric 2022
Whilst based on a foundation of the core skills of Australian general practice, rural general practice provides a diversity of geographical and demographic contexts, which contribute to a broad spectrum of patient presentations and potential limitations in availability of health resources. Providing quality care to rural and remote communities therefore requires a flexible and innovative approach and a particular set of skills. The skills that need to be developed and maintained by GPs to provide quality care to their communities depend largely on their practice context and the specialised services and resources available within the local vicinity. The skill sets required for rural and remote practice may be required at an extended or advanced level depending on these factors.
RH1.1 Communicate effectively with other health professionals using available infrastructure
RH2.1 Deliver quality care to a rural and remote community
RH3.1 Promote health in the rural and/or remote community
RH3.2 Undertake a range of public health roles
RH4.1 Identify and ethically manage therapeutic boundary issues
