Abstract

The challenge of remoteness is an issue for both patients and clinicians in regional, rural and remote areas of Australia with limited attention having been paid to the needs for currency maintenance and enhancement of competency of practice nurses (PNs) in providing sexual and reproductive health (S&RH) education following initial formal preparation for these roles. This paper presents research-in-progress that is identifying needs, analysing issues and developing a model for Internet-based training and support to assist Australian practice nurses in their roles as S&RH providers.
