Best practice communiques

A Best Practice Communiqué summarises the scope of discussion, and any resulting outcomes, relating to a topic that has been addressed by the Best Practice Group.

The group reviews current practice and standards and determines appropriate 'best practice' to be applied in Northern Territory Primary Health Care.

The Best Practice Referral Form can be used to submit recommendations for the Best Practice Group to review. Forms for Primary Health Care CAHS and TEHS are available on the Remote health atlas forms webpage.
