Seasons greetings from the RAHC team and best wishes for 2015

The Board and team at RAHC wish our stakeholders and Health Professionals all the best for the festive season and the New Year.

RAHC has experienced another successful year as we exceeded our placement targets and continued to support new-to-remote Health Professionals successfully transition to remote practice.

Our Remote Educator (RE) program has delivered outstanding outcomes and we are grateful to the pool of REs who have come on board to assist us with supporting the “newbies”.

We are delighted to announce that we now have 15 clinical online learning modules and we invite you to take advantage of these great resources. The modules are free, and can be used for Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Thank you to all the RAHC Health Professionals who have undertaken placements this year and demonstrated such professionalism, commitment and resilience. Recent data shows that the gap in Indigenous outcomes is showing some progress so we need to continue our efforts.

Finally, in 2012 RAHC lost a valued team member, Placement Manager Annette Walker. To recognise Annette’s contribution to the team, her passion for being part of the effort, commitment to excellence and ‘can do’ attitude, the Annette Walker Memorial Award was launched in 2013. We are now calling on people to nominate a RAHC Health Professional who deserves to be recognised for an outstanding contribution, more information is included in this eBulletin.

Kind regards
