Professor Lyn Gilbert and Adjunct Professor Alan Lilly have been commissioned by the Department of Health to undertake a national review of COVID-19 outbreaks in Australian Residential Aged Care Facilities.

RACF managers (or equivalent) are invited to complete a short online survey about the facility’s preparation for and, if an outbreak occurred, management of a COVID-19 outbreak.

The data will be collected and analysed by the University of Sydney. Survey responses will remain anonymous and no individual RACF will be identifiable. The feedback and analysis will be an invaluable contribution to the report and recommendations to the Department of Health.

The survey will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete. Your input is critical to continuous improvement in the management of potential COVID-19 outbreaks in residential care. Thank you in advance.

The survey can be accessed online.

The survey will close at 5.00pm on Wednesday 17 March 2021.
