RWAV is the Victorian fundholder for nine Australian Government outreach programs including:
Outreach programs significantly improve the range of health services available to rural, regional and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities. It enables access to health professionals in areas where they cannot attract, or it is not viable to sustain a local service provider.
Outreach programs provide a flexible funding pool to support health professionals to deliver health care services in outreach locations by providing funding support to cover the basic costs of travel, accommodation, meals and other associated expenditure. In some cases, program funding may also extend to the clients and carers.
Outreach funds are not to cover the costs of a salary. It is supplementary funding to support a health professional to provide outreach services and Medicare billing should be claimed where possible.
