Communication, Consultation and Competency in Clinical Skills (4C's) Program



The Communication, Consultation and Competency in Clinical Skills (4C's) workshop is designed to increase the confidence and capacity of the health professional to use the Primary clinical care manual (PCCM) or CARPA standard treatment manual (CARPA), to accurately document health care episodes and consult with doctors and nurses about client care to deliver safe, quality care in the remote setting.

The course is flexible and interactive and delivered in a face to face environment. It has a focus on using the PCCM/CARPA in everyday presentations at remote health services with an emphasis on using the guidelines for chronic disease health checks and consultation with a medical officer.

The 4C’s Program is designed to meet the learning needs of the remote and isolated health workforce (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers/Practitioners, nurses, midwives and medical officers who may be required to utilise these skills in their workplace.

The CRANAplus 4C’s Program consists of attendance at a three day face to face course that covers lectures and scenarios that look at common clinic presentations in the remote health setting.
