The planning, design, funding and delivery of quality, contemporary health care is universally a complex and challenging task.
This is irrespective of setting, community and population characteristics, economic circumstances and individual health status.
In rural and remote Australia the complexity is magnified by unique characteristics and challenges. These necessitate the development and application of a dedicated framework which supports a nationally coordinated approach that is also adaptable to local conditions.
