Managing emergencies in general practice
Part A – Introduction to emergency planning in Australian general practice
Last revised: 01 Jun 2017
Managing emergencies in general practice: A guide for preparation, response and recovery was developed by the RACGP under the guidance of the project’s steering committee.
The RACGP received project funding from the then Department of Health and Ageing via the Office of Health Protection to develop this resource which was finalised in 2013.
The RACGP undertook an extensive consultation process to develop this resource and would like to thank those who offered ideas and suggestions, provided feedback on drafts and attended the national disaster management summit in 2012. The collective effort resulted in a comprehensive resource that provides general practices with practical advice on how to better prepare for, respond to and recover from the impact of emergencies. The RACGP would particularly like to thank those who contributed to the development of the original document:
The resource has been updated in 2017 and no longer includes information about managing pandemics in general practice; rather, it focuses on emergency planning and response only. The RACGP resource Managing pandemic influenza in general practice has also been updated and is now the key resource for GPs and practices for managing pandemics in general practice.
