Primary care providers and their staff are increasingly finding themselves as part of the front line dealing with the impact of disasters.
Over recent years the Hunter New England and Central Coast regions experienced the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, bushfires, drought, extreme weather events including thunderstorms and severe floods, and a rodent plague.
Being well prepared is vital for providers to reduce their vulnerability, minimise risk, and increase business and workforce resilience.
The HNECC PHN is proud to announce the upcoming Winter Trilogy event series “When a Disaster Affects Your Practice”. This series will be held over three free webinar sessions to provide primary care providers vital information on how to prepare for a disaster and develop a tailored business continuity plan.
The three events will cover six relevant hazard scenarios and the short-to-medium and long-term effects on primary care providers and their staff. The PHN will welcome subject matter experts who will talk about their first-hand experience and provide you with their insights.
This event trilogy will promote the following learning outcomes:
Who should attend: All interested providers and their staff from Community Practices (General Practice and Aboriginal Medical Services), Allied Health, Aged Care Providers, Pharmacy, and Dental.
