General practices play a significant role in the community’s response to an emergency. But, to be able to do this, your practice and its staff need to be prepared.
Completing the ERPT will give your practice a resource for all staff to refer in the case of a minor emergency or major disaster: who to call, how to store vaccines during power outages, bushfire emergency plans, pandemic response and much more.
Completing the ERPT takes around three hours. The critical information you enter into the ERPT is used to create an emergency response plan, which is individually tailored to your practice (see samples below).
