Returning to clinical practice during the pandemic

To keep you, me and our community as safe as possible, like so many of my peers the world-over I’m gathering as much information as I can.

Today I’ve completed this 2:20 hour webinar, and earlier this year I received my Certificate of Acknowledgement for the Australian Government Department of Health COVID-19 Infection Control Training.

Today I’m looking at how my North American peers are setting up within their public health frameworks, as well as mandatory Australian national and state-specific infection-control and risk-management protocols specific to COVID-19.

The primary aim is to reduce the risk of transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus which causes the corona virus disease: COVID-19.

This means that once I’m back in clinic, things will look a little different and there’ll be a number of new processes and procedures which begin 24 hours before each of your visits to the clinic.

I’ll update you once I’ve finalised the details in each clinic space.

In the meanwhile, follow your state government guidelines and laws, take care, and please be meticulous about your hand hygiene, coughing and sneezing, and don’t touch your face.

If you become unwell with fever and/or respiratory symptoms, please call your doctor or local health service or fever clinic.
