Module 1: Natural disasters and emergencies
Emergencies such as floods or fires can impact your practice in a variety of ways. Examples of potential impacts include:
The RACGP’s Providing care and support during disasters webpage contains up to date information on responding to natural disasters and emergencies, including:
If your practice’s accreditation is due to expire in the next six months and has been affected by a natural disaster or other emergency, please contact your accrediting agency who can apply to the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (ACSQHC) on your behalf for an extension to your accreditation expiry date. Such requests are managed under Advisory GP18/01.
For further information, please contact your accrediting agency or ACSQHC's Advice Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also contact the RACGP Standards team at email@example.com should you have any further questions.
The RACGP updates its advice regularly on the Providing care and support during disasters page.
