dc.description.abstractThere are areas of Australia where geographical circumstances preclude referral of certain types of surgery, and where there are no specialist anaesthesia services. Such areas require general practitioners (GPs) to be administering anaesthesia. Where possible, general practitioner anaesthetists (GPAs) should work in co-operation with resident and visiting specialist anaesthetists. The College acknowledges the role of rural GPs by its membership of the tripartite Joint Consultative Committee of Anaesthesia (JCCA), in partnership with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM). The JCCA oversees the training, examination, and ongoing accreditation of rural GP anaesthetists. These practitioners must have appropriate training and must be administering anaesthesia safely. This training is fully outlined in the Rural Training Curriculum, endorsed by the JCCA. It should be clearly understood that this College professional document is not intended in any way to endorse, reflect on, or prejudge the issue of surgery being undertaken in rural and remote areas. Furthermore, the question of hospital facilities and infrastructure is crucial to this matter, and anaesthesia is only one of a number of considerations which must influence any management decisions to be made in the best interests of the patient.en_US
