MANY OF THE LINKS PREVIOUSLY AVAILABLE ON THIS PAGE HAVE BEEN REMOVED PENDING REVIEW OF THE GOVERNANCE OF GUIDELINES THAT EMINATE FROM ONE FACILITY AND MAY BE UTILISED IN ANOTHER FACILITY WITHOUT GUIDEANCE FROM THE AUTHORS OF THE GUIDELINES. WE HOPE TO HAVE RELEVANT DOCUMENTS AVAILABLE ON THIS PAGE AGAIN IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
The following documents / guidelines are provided for ease of access by JMOs who are rotating to rural facilities. It is important to note that these do not replace clinical discussion with your supervising SMO, and your facility may have local versions of these guidelines. However, you may find these guidelines useful as educational and reference material.
Please also note that although we will review this material on a regular basis to ensure it remains current we cannot guarantee version control.
You can find some information on the various rural sites on the Cairns RMO Society website.
