Do you feel comfortable with your PPE?

6 May 2020

There is currently a lot of uncertainty around the availability of PPE, how it should be used for COVID-19 patients and the security of ongoing supply. This is putting a lot of stress on the workforce, particularly for Doctors in Training, who are on the front lines but are frequently not involved in these discussions at their institutions. In order to provide the best possible care to our patients, all healthcare workers must feel safe doing their job. 

The AMACDT is speaking with a number of stakeholders to ensure provision and supply of PPE is a priority, and that communication around these issues is both timely and clear. If you have feedback or concerns about PPE in your workplace, please let us know either via messaging this page or by emailing
