To inform the development of this submission AHHA would like to invite members and supporters to attend a policy roundtable to consider:

  • The experience of healthcare services providers supporting patients with long COVID and/or repeated COVID infections;
  • The impact that heath service providers are seeing on individuals who develop long COVID and/or have repeated COVID infections, their families, and the broader community (including groups that face a greater risk of serious illness due to factors such as age, existing health conditions, disability and background);
  • The impact of long COVID and/or repeated COVID infections on Australia’s overall health system, particularly in relation to deferred treatment, reduced health screening, postponed elective surgery, and increased risk of various conditions including cardiovascular, neurological and immunological conditions in the general population; and
  • Best practice responses regarding the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of long COVID and/or repeated COVID infections, and the challenges and opportunities in implementing these in the Australian context.

AHHA members and supporters are also invited to provide written feedback to ehoban@ahha.asn.au
