Communicating COVID-19: Preparing clinicians to tackle challenging questions
This free University of Melbourne course gives health care workers evidence-based information and language to confidently address questions about COVID-19 from patients, colleagues and the general public.
It aims to:
- provide expert-informed answers to questions Australian clinicians face about COVID-19
- deliver ‘digestible’, focused, core knowledge on COVID-19, drawing on epidemiology, clinical science, ethics and legal expertise.
The course is designed primarily for clinicians in primary care and hospital-based settings. Secondary audiences include pharmacists, nursing and allied health staff, aged care workers, and disability care workers. Elements of this course could be adapted for primary and secondary school teachers and for the general public.
