A medical defence organisation is warning doctors to ‘carefully consider’ public comment on the Israel-Gaza war, including posters in practices, because of the risk they will be reported to AHPRA. 

Avant said several doctors had asked for advice related to social media posting since the Hamas atrocities on 7 October.
