The Northern Territory Disease Control Bulletin Vol 9, No.1, March 2002 15 well as for use in similar educational events. The list of take-home messages were highly appreciated by course participants, and likewise can be used for future training. Conclusion The success of this educational event supports the approach of an interactive assessment of needs (the 1999 GP survey and remote strategy findings) and the subsequent development of a training program reflecting these needs. The course was highly regarded by all who attended and consideration could be given to running it in Central Australia in the future. Negotiations are underway with the TEDGP for a workshop highlighting the common notifiable diseases, using hypotheticals and clinical scenarios and explaining the public health responses. Acknowledgements Thanks to Jan Savage, Steven Skov and particularly to Stephen Baguley, who spent his last day in Australia teaching at the course, for making the session a success. Thanks too, to the TEDGP staff, Gemma Byrne, Caitlin and Vicki McGowan, for their support.
