A checklist for GPs with patients in aged care facilities has been developed by North Western Melbourne PHN, based on the Victorian experience.
The checklist draws upon stakeholder experience and expertise. It includes input from Professor Michael Murray, the head of the Australian Government’s Victorian Aged Care Response Centre, the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services and the Aged Care Expert Advisory Group chaired by Dr Jagdeesh Singh Dhaliwal.
You can find the checklist, along with the details of North Coast response planning, on the Primary Care Impact quality improvement page: Increase GP Preparedness for COVID-19 Outbreak in RACF.
Contact your Primary Health Coordinator for more information and read up on how to prepare for COVID-19 outbreaks in aged care on the North Coast.
