• Provision of diagnostic and management advice via telehealth;
• Fly-in and fly-out service models;
• Innovative methods of practice;
• Limited clinical diagnostic support and specialist services;
• Different treatment protocols;
• Primary, secondary and tertiary levels of care that require a higher level of clinical acumen;
• Public health knowledge;
• Cross-cultural understanding;
• Resourcefulness;
• Increased responsibility.
