Wednesday, October 13th 2021
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

As the number of COVID-19 infections increase, Adult Emergency Departments are seeing a surge in patients attending for a range of presentations. ED resources are limited, and patients presenting with mild disease or vaccine-related complaints may be managed outside of emergency. Additionally, COVID-19 patients increase the risk of transmission to others if spending lengthy time in ED waiting rooms.

This session will discuss a range of issues around the GP management of COVID-19 related health complaints. These include patient triage, requirements for patients attending ED and assessing and treating COVID-19 / vaccine related health conditions with more specific information related to myocarditis and pericarditis following an mRNA vaccination.

The presentation will also include a Q&A session with a panel of expert clinicians.
