Appointment of Professor Lynn Gilbert- Chair Infection Prevention and Control Expert Advisory Group
 
The College welcomes the appointment of Professor Gilbert as chair of the Infection Prevention and Control Expert Advisory Group of the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee and commends the Australian Government on this initiative. The College looks forward to participating actively in national and international efforts to prevent and control the spread of EVD.
 
By way of background the College is heavily engaged with the Commonwealth and other authorities on a range of infection prevention and control matters, including the most recent challenges with respect to Ebola Virus Disease (EVD). We have been working actively with the Office of the Australian Government Chief Medical Officer and the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee with respect to EVD, including on future national strategies that Professor Gilbert will take leadership of in her new role.
 
More information about these ongoing discussions will be posted here and also delivered to all members via E Bulletin as they are to hand.
 
In the meantime the College policy is that all members ensure that they are familiar with and follow the various state/jurisdiction based guidelines for the management of such cases in their facilities.
