OBJECTIVE: The shortage of dentists in Outer Regional and Remote areas of Australia and long public dental waiting lists have been the subject of media attention over the last decade. A number of state and federal initiatives were introduced over the years to address these problems. This study aims to gauge whether the waiting lists and shortage of dentists in Outer Regional and Remote areas have seen a positive change over the last decade. DESIGN: This evaluation study analysed and compared the number of dentists full-time equivalent per 100 000 population, eligible population and waiting list size (New South Wales and Queensland) at various points in time over the last decade...

INTRODUCTION: Relatively few psychiatrists live and work in rural South Australia. The rural GP is an essential component of support for people with mental health problems. However, considerable GP maldistribution between rural and metropolitan Australia still exists. Thus, accessing health services, including medication, becomes challenging for rural communities. Extending mental health nurse prescribing could be a strategy to build additional capacity to complement the GPs and psychiatrists who practice in rural South Australia...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the effects of dominant knowledge in rural health, including how they shape issues central to rural health. In particular, this article examines the roles of: (i) deficit knowledge of rural health workforce; (ii) dominant portrayals of generalism; and (iii) perceptions of inferiority about rural communities in maintaining health disparities between rural- and metropolitan-based Australians. DESIGN: A Foucauldian framework is applied to literature, evidence, case studies and key messages in rural health...

PROBLEM: Chronic conditions are major health problems for Australian Aboriginal people. Self-management programs can improve health outcomes. However, few health workers are skilled in self-management support and existing programs are not always appropriate in Australian Aboriginal contexts. DESIGN: The goal was to increase the capacity of the Australian health workforce to support Australian Aboriginal people to self-manage their chronic conditions by adapting the Flinders Program of chronic condition self-management support for Australian Aboriginal clients and develop and deliver training for health professionals to implement the program...

OBJECTIVE: Although mental health literacy has increased in recent years, mental illness is often under-recognised. There has been little research conducted on mental illness in rural areas; however, this can be most prominent in rural areas due to factors such as greater stigma and stoicism. The aim of this study is to create a profile of those who are most and least likely to self-identify mental health problems among rural residents with moderate- to-high psychological distress. DESIGN: Secondary analysis of a longitudinal postal survey...

REVIEW
Timothy A Carey, David Sirett, John Wakerman, Deborah Russell, John S Humphreys
Visiting health services are a feature of health care delivery in rural and remote contexts. These services are often described as 'fly-in fly-out' or 'drive-in drive-out'. Posing the question 'What are the different types of visiting models of primary health care being used in rural and remote communities?', the objective of this article was to describe a typology of models of health services that visit remote communities. A systematic review of peer-reviewed literature from established databases was undertaken...
