Abstract

Background: Communication between general practitioners, information sharing, and GP support are important issues, especially for those in rural and remote areas. Internet based links can facilitate enhanced communication.

Objective: This article describes the new internet based communication forum for GPs working, or interested in the health of, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Discussion: The NACCHO GP Network is the first on-line service to provide focussed information for GPs in the Aboriginal community controlled health sector. It also provides a place for GPs, locums and general practice registrars to raise issues and share ideas and information on Aboriginal health practice. The NACCHO GP Network has the potential to reduce isolation and address the support needs of GPs, and enhance the interaction of the Aboriginal community controlled sector with general practice organisations.
