Fly-in fly-out/ drive-in drive-out practices and health service delivery in rural areas of Australia

15 Mar 2014
Description

This Policy Issue Review investigates claims that Fly-in Fly-out/ Drive-in Drive-out (FIFO/DIDO) groups are placing a burden on Australian rural health care services. Based on a rapid review of current literature, and including mining and seasonal workers, as well as grey nomads, the size and health profiles of these FIFO/DIDO groups are reviewed, and evidence of demands placed on rural services reported. Recommendations are made regarding the use of currently available data and the design of future studies to generate new evidence.
