This topic provides health professionals with an opportunity to develop skills and knowledge necessary to successfully design and manage projects that are relevant to isolated, remote and Indigenous health contexts worldwide. A simple conceptual model for project management is presented and considered in the light of community development approaches. Project plans and known outcomes from two projects highly relevant to remote and Indigenous Primary Health Care services are critically analysed.
This topic aims to develop students' knowledge, skills and attitudes for planning, implementing and evaluating projects within a Primary Health Care framework. Local and international examples are used to provide an opportunity for students to apply community development principles to profession specific practice within isolated, remote and Indigenous contexts where they work or plan to work in the future.
