  1. Shrinking the Kimberley : remote area psychiatry in Australia.

    Article - En anglais

    The Kimberley, the northernmost region of Western Australia, is still largely an empty wilderness.

    About twice the size of Victoria, it has a permanent population of some 22,000.

    Since 1987, the Health Department of WA has provided a psychiatric service to the region, but the practice of psychiatry in such a vast and remote area has proven to be very different from that in larger centres.

    This paper summarises three years'clinical experience in the region.
