About us

Introduction

The coronavirus pandemic is shaking up medicine in ways never seen before.

From the need to adapt clinically to detect, treat and prevent the virus, to developing new modes of working to ensure patient safety, doctors are on a rollercoaster ride of new information and demands, with little end in sight.

This new Coronavirus Group aims to help you manage both professionally and personally by providing a safe place to share your experiences, learn from patient cases and discuss (or vent over!) the latest government edicts and guidance.

Doctors from all specialties are welcome – we’d love this group to offer a kaleidoscope of pandemic perspectives.

So, whether you’re a GP, an infectious disease specialist or an emergency physician we’d love to see you there!

Rules

Part of AusDoc's mission to become a must-visit medical knowledge community is to encourage respectful debate and provide a platform for healthy discussion.

In a bid to ensure real-time responses, all posts and comments are published unmoderated, which means you can post and comment quickly as the conversation continues.

However, we will be post-moderating all posts and comments, and where they breach medical and media laws, we will remove them.

We also do not tolerate abuse, threats or promotion for commercial gain, and these types of posts will also be removed when we deem necessary.

As a general guide, posts and comments will be removed if they:

  • Breach patient privacy laws
  • Breach copyright laws
  • Are defamatory or inflammatory
  • Contain threats or personal attacks
  • Are inappropriate for a professional site
  • Are off topic
  • Include personal information such as addresses, phone numbers and emails

Posting anonymously does not protect you from liability for potential defamation. We also apply Godwin's law.

Please be kind to each other. There is enough misery in the world.
