Hendra virus – CDNA National Guidelines for Public Health Units
Hendra virus exposure assessment form
We aim to provide documents in an accessible format. If you're having problems using a document with your accessibility tools, please contact us for help.
The Series of National Guidelines have been developed in consultation with the Communicable Diseases Network Australia and endorsed by the Australian Health Protection Principle Committee.
They provide nationally consistent advice and guidance to public health units in responding to a notifiable disease event. These guidelines capture the knowledge of experienced professionals, built on past research efforts. They give advice on best practice, based on the best available evidence at the time of completion.
These national guidelines give information about:
- the disease
- prevention activities
- surveillance objectives
- data management
- case definition
- laboratory testing
- case management
- environmental evaluation
- contact management
- special situations
People who might have been exposed to the virus should complete the Exposure Assessment Form.
