The Primary Clinical Care Manual (PCCM) 8th edition provides Clinical Care Guidelines and Health Management Protocols, especially for Scheduled Medicines Rural and Isolated Practice Registered Nurses and authorised Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers to administer and supply medications. The interventions recommended in the PCCM 8th edition are evidence based and are in accordance with the Health (Drugs and Poisons) Regulation 1996.

The PCCM 8th edition is the result of a successful partnership between Queensland Health staff and the staff of the Royal Flying Doctor Service (Queensland Section).

The PCCM 8th edition is the principal clinical reference and policy document for health professionals working in rural and remote Queensland. It contains Health Management Protocols that support the advanced practice of authorised Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers, Scheduled Medicines Rural and Isolated Practice Registered Nurses, Authorised Sexual and Reproductive Health Registered Nurses and Immunisation Program Authorised Registered Nurses. These Health Management Protocols set out the circumstances, conditions and restrictions under which medicines listed in the Drug Therapy Protocols can be used.

Queensland Health staff working in rural and remote ambulatory care settings use the clinical care guidelines and Health Management Protocols contained in the PCCM 8th edition as their guide to practice. I commend the PCCM 8th edition as the principal clinical reference and policy document to Queensland Health’s rural and remote practitioners.
