Students from Flinders NTMP Year 1, 2 and 3; Charles Darwin University Nursing and Pharmacy and Batchelor Aboriginal Health Practitioner course not only contributed actively to the weekend but also engaged positively with each other and everyone. The aim of the Remote Health Experience was to develop interprofessional and professional specific skills; and knowledge and attributes required for competent, confident, accountable practice within a remote and Indigenous health setting within a primary health care framework. The weekend focused on inter-professional learning for very remote contexts an inseparable work and living environment characterised by unique cultural, linguistic, social, economic, geographical, and climatic conditions. Participants learnt many practical applications for very remote practice. The event was organised by Associate Professor Pascale Dettwiller and Dr Sarah Chalmers from Flinders NT, with assistance from many other Flinders NT staff.
