Primary Care resources coming soon – pls bookmark and check back later.
I also use my MEDICARE CHEAT SHEET most shifts.
For the moment, I would recommend the following sites from rural doctors in Australia
Casey Parker’s one man mission to improve his standing on Google (click for the other Casey Parker). An excellent resource for the rural doctor with well-thought out evidence-based cases and discussion, plus downloadable podcasts
Rural GP proceduralist Dr Francois Pretorius documents his experiences in Australia, including the move from solo rural GP in SA to Qld.
The Doctor’s Dilemma - from prize-winning poet and GP registrar Dr Marlene Pearce.
A collaboration from various primary care doctors in Australia, covering relevant FOAMed topics of interest to primary care doctors
Dr Melanie Clothier reflects on life as a rural GP trainee, preventative medicine (let’s face it, this is where it is at) and topics relevant to rural doctors
A rambling series of infrequent posts from Tim Leeuwenburg on Kangaroo Island, South Australia. Mostly to do with issues around rural GP on my favourite topics of GP-Anaesthesia, Trauma and Health Bureaucracy in SA. Views my own and not endorsed by other doctors on KI
Obstetric GP Dr Penny Wilson shares her thoughts on life as a rural locum – passionate and erudite, I would recommend her site.
Dr David Chessor gives his insights on life as a GP, veritably glowing with pride in his choice of profession. Truly general practice is the best job in the world. Either that or David needs to take his meds…
Practice website but with insightful blog from Dr Edwin Kruys in Geraldton, WA. Not afraid to tackle the big issues like PHECR and bulk-billing, and compiles a weekly FOAMed newsletter.
PHARM He may “work in the sky & live in the tropics” – Minh le Cong has gained a reputation not just as a promiscuous blogger and airway enthusiast, but also a staunch advocate of ketamine (re-named keta-Minh). He brings his considerable talents to PHARM (prehospital and retrieval medicine) from the perspective of an RFDS doc – but has a firm background in prior life as a rural GP. Recommend this blog for ANY rural GP proceduralist or those who cover A&E on call.
Up & coming rural GP registrar Dr Gerry Considine from South Australia provides thoughtful insights into primary care topics. An advocate of FOAMed and regular on BroomeDocs podcasts, Gerry is one to watch…
Scott is a procedural GP in the small town of Wudinna on the Eyre Peninsula, SA. He is also the current President of the RDASA. Here he writes musings on life as a rural doctor and is keen to counteract the negative stereotypes that can abound…
Delightfully titled blog, with a collection of writings from Dr Tim Senior, originator of the concept of ‘SuperTwision’.
