Environment & PPE

Why is this topic important? Environmental factors (such as donning and doffing PPE and infection prevention and control) are very important in the care and management of patients with COVID-19 and may not be part of a clinician's everyday practice in normal circumstances. 

For whom: This section will be relevant to all health care practitioners caring for patients with COVID-19. 

Your potential role: Assuring your own, and others', safety during this pandemic is absolutely vital and therefore this section is relevant to all health care practitioners working with patients who have COVID-19.
