The Role:

The Public Health Registrar position is incorporated into the public health team for the Pilbara Country Health Service. The immediate line manager is the regional Public Health Physician, and then the Regional Medical Director.

The position is situated in thenewly refurbished Population Health offices at Karratha and Port Hedland Hospitals. These are busy mining towns with very busy ports exporting minerals in the north west, each having a population of approximately 15,000.

The role involves responding to communicable diseases notifications and disease outbreaks. You will become familiarwith the system of notifications to the state wide notifiable diseases database, and enjoy collegiate interaction with local hospital doctors, GPs, Aboriginal Health Service and RFDS doctors. There are several small Aboriginal communities in the region tovisit with either RFDS or other members of the Population Health team.

You will learn the variety of professional roles within the public health and population health teams in rural and remote regions. You will be supported with a cultural orientation and gain a closer insight of the services provided by local Aboriginal Health Services. You will experience the work of quarantine officers who monitor the shipping at the ports, and the Local authority Environmental Health Officers (EHO).

There are a number of projects which are topics of concern and unique to the region eg Rheumatic heart disease, Pulmonary Tuberculosis, FIFO workers and mining camp issues, Meningococcal disease, Mosquito borne diseases (following heavy rainfall of cyclones), dust and heat issues. This is a unique position which all previous registrars have enjoyed, leading to an appreciation of the constraints for all health staff working in a rural remote region, and the limitations imposed by huge distances, weather, and cultural differences. This position would suit trainees in their final year of Public Health training.
