Disasters and emergencies are increasing in prevalence and impact, and the Gold Coast region has a relatively high level of exposure to extreme weather events.
Plan and ensure you are ready for the impact of disasters on your practice and patients.
There are a range of resources for health professionals to prepare for, respond to and recover from natural disasters as well as resources to help you to support your community.
There are a number of events being held on the Gold Coast, to support health professionals, first responders and community organisations, plan, prepare, respond and recover from disasters.
