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...

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...

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...

BACKGROUND: The sickest Australians are often those belonging to non-privileged groups, including Indigenous Australians, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual, intersex and queer people, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, socioeconomically disadvantaged groups, and people with disabilities and low English literacy. These consumers are not always engaged by, or included within, mainstream health services, particularly in rural Australia where health services are limited in number and tend to be generalist in nature...
