[WEBINAR] COVID-19 Clinical Update with Professor David Wilkinson (Week 5)

As the COVID-19 situation continues to unfold, Professor David Wilkinson – Deputy Vice-Chancellor at Macquarie University, general practitioner, public health medicine specialist and epidemiologist – returns for the fifth webinar in our ongoing series to provide an informed clinical update and advice for GPs.

Some of the topics covered in this webinar include:

  • Current state of the pandemic
  • How long will our restrictions continue?
  • Has the cost been worth it?
  • Addressing the uncertainty / new normal for healthcare
  • Asymptomatic infection

We are here to support medical professionals facing these challenging circumstances. Each week, we will hold two webinars + Q&A with expert guidance to assist you in navigating this evolving international public health situation from a clinical and business point of view.

Questions addressed by Professor Wilkinson during the webinar:

  1. As a parent, how can I feel okay about sending my child to school, when around the world, we hear of children dying from this virus?
  2. As skin cancer doctors, with our reliance on dermoscopy, how do you see telehealth playing a role for us?
  3. If there is asymptomatic transmission, do you think this is happening in Australia?
  4. From what those asymptomatic figures show, does it follow that we can then group skin cancer clinic appointments by age and make a new model as such to appointment-distance our patients? It would be nice to be able to have age ranges to guide the initiative.
  5. After exposure, is there a way to prevent infection? E.g inhaling hot steam from steamers with medication drops, iodine or other meds such as Gilead antiviral.
  6. If someone has come into contact, is there a role for chloroquine? Ivermectine? Azithromycin?
  7. What PPE do we need to wear in general practice on a daily basis, particularly if we are not testing patients for COVID-19? There are some mixed messages out there.
  8. Is hot and cold alternate sensation of body one of the symptoms in COVID disease?
