The Remote Health Atlas website enables Primary Health Care (PHC) Workers across the Northern Territory and visitors to the site to access health resources online. The Atlas provides information for PHC staff by setting standards, providing guidance, describing processes and providing other general information.
Content is designed to fit within legislation and wider departmental policy. Similarly content is designed to blend with other Department Branches and service providers.
The Atlas does not generally seek to provide protocols for the managment of clinical conditions. It is important to note that the CARPA Standard Treatment Manual and the Women's Business Manual are approved under the NT medicines, Poisons and Therapeutic Goods Act for use by clinical staff working within PHC. However when clinical best practice changes, or where a new requirement for clinical guidance emerges, interim advice is contained in the hard copy of the Additional Clinical Protocols Folder and Section 14 of the Atlas.
