SpotOnHealth HealthPathways provides clinicians in the greater Brisbane south catchment with web-based information outlining the assessment, management and referral of more than 550 conditions.
Regions using HealthPathways throughout Queensland have agreed to take a statewide approach to publishing up-to-date information related to the assessment and management of COVID-19. This will complement localised information for Brisbane south where possible. For more information designed to be used at point-of-care, see COVID-19 Assessment and Management on SpotOnHealth HealthPathways.
This webpage is updated daily by local GP Clinical Editors, reflecting emerging clinical advice from the State Health Emergency Coordinating Committee.
The webpage contains:
- information about the assessment and management of COVID-19 for treating GPs
- information on PPE and where to get it
- where to get testing, and how to notify suspect cases
- practice guidance, including patient reception, management and cleaning afterwards
- local service changes – at Metro South Health in the first instance and eventually extending to Mater Health and Children’s Health Queensland).
Influenza immunisation is also updated and reflects the 2020 program details.
