Health Consumers Queensland webcast
Throughout the pandemic we have been hearing the concerns of consumers and health staff in rural and remote areas about how a COVID outbreak could affect their communities and families.
There are large sections of Queensland where they have been fortunate not to have a single case of COVID. But what does this mean when COVID comes to Queensland, and comes into areas that haven’t been exposed to it?
What levels of community transmission are likely during outbreaks in rural and remote communities? What impact will lower vaccination rates have?
What will healthcare look like in rural and remote areas during a COVID-19 surge?
What will COVID-19 diagnosis and treatment mean if hospital is hours away?
How are rural and remote communities, smaller health services, rural GPs, community controlled health organisations, retrieval services, local councils and local emergency services preparing to cope?
How will people access food, medications and community services?
Join us as our CEO Melissa Fox hosts Statewide Rural and Remote Clinical Network co-chairs Dr Konrad Kangru and Dr Emily Moody to discuss COVID-19 preparation from a rural and remote perspective.
