We are pleased to announce the latest Toolkit curated by the Elsevier team. This Toolkit focuses on Rural and Remote Health.
Within this ClinicalKey for Nursing toolkit you will find links to some of the latest journal articles, books and drug information relevant to Rural and Remote Health in Australia and New Zealand
The importance of rural and remote health in the Australian and New Zealand region stems from the ethical obligation to provide equitable healthcare services to all populations, regardless of their geographic location. Addressing these concerns requires policy initiatives, innovative healthcare delivery models, increased investment in healthcare infrastructure, and a comprehensive approach to Indigenous health. By focusing on rural and remote health, the ANZ region can strive towards achieving better health outcomes for all its residents.

AccessMedicine: John Murtagh’s General Practice Collection, or Murtagh Collection for short, provides an indispensable source of information for medical professionals and students alike. For more than 20 years, John Murtagh’s General Practice has been regarded throughout Australasia as the authoritative reference for practicing and aspiring GPs. The seventh edition of John Murtagh’s General Practice includes updates to sexual health and cervical cancer screening, mental health diagnosis and treatment, and chronic disorders which forms the backbone of this digital collection.
Developed over 20 years, the success of this collection stems from the fact that the content is written from the point of view of an experienced general practitioner, underscored by John Murtagh’s diagnostic strategy model. The easy-to-read texts in this collection are coupled with numerous illustrations and photographs and are invaluable, trusted references.
