New COVID-19 Vaccination Information pathway is now available on HealthPathways

HealthPathways WA has published the new COVID-19 Vaccination Information Pathway. This pathway compiles all of the relevant clinical information from both the State and Federal Governments that is currently available for GPs regarding the vaccination rollout, including:

  • links to education and training
  • vaccine specific information
  • guidance on vaccination in specific populations
  • consent forms
  • accessing AIR, practice and patient preparation information
  • comprehensive list of patient resources

GPs and practice clinical staff are strongly encouraged to familiarise themselves with the content of this HealthPathway and to refer to it in the first instance for any queries they have about COVID-19 vaccination.  There is also a comprehensive list of resources that GPs can provide for patients who may have questions about COVID-19 vaccination.  This pathway is subject to continuing review by WAPHA’s GP Clinical Editors, and GPs should be assured that the information contained is as comprehensive, accurate and up to date as possible.

Australian Government Department of Health COVID-19 Vaccination Training Program

In preparation for Australia’s vaccine rollout, authorised COVID-19 vaccination providers must complete COVID-19 vaccination training. This will ensure our workforce is competent in the safe management and administration of COVID-19 vaccines.
 
The Australian Government has partnered with the Australian College of Nursing to develop and deliver free and accredited training modules.
 
The training is available for all authorised COVID-19 vaccination providers. This will include:

  • health professionals in hospitals
  • general practices,
  • state and Commonwealth vaccination clinics
  • Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations
  • pharmacies.
 
The training is also available for non-clinical and administration staff. They can access the non-clinical modules of the training such as handling, storage and administration.
 

Training modules

COVID-19 vaccination training modules are categorised into 2 groups, core and additional.
 
Core COVID-19 modules involve training for COVID-19 vaccination more broadly. Additional COVID-19 modules are specific to individual vaccine candidates.
 

Core COVID-19 training modules will cover:

  • COVID-19 introduction
  • handling and storage
  • communication and purpose
  • multi-dose vial (MDV) training
  • documentation and reporting
  • safety and surveillance monitoring and reporting for adverse events following immunisation
 

Additional COVID-19 training modules include specific training for:

  • Pfizer/BioNTech (module available)
  • Oxford University/AstraZeneca
  • Novavax
  • future vaccines (i.e. as possible new vaccines emerge)
 

Enrolling in the training:

The training is being provided free to all authorised COVID-19 vaccination providers. These first modules are targeting health professionals in hospitals who will be administering the Pfizer vaccine.
Health professionals are advised to seek confirmation from their employer that they will be a vaccination provider before accessing the training.
 
To enrol in the course COVID-19 vaccination providers are required to:
  • have already undertaken routine immunisation training specific to their profession; and
  • have the authority to administer vaccinations in their relevant state and territory.

 
Administrative or non-clinical staff can enrol to access non-clinical modules. To access COVID-19 vaccination training, visit covid19vaccinationtraining.org.au

Provisional TGA approval – Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has granted provisional approval to AstraZeneca Pty Ltd for its COVID-19 vaccine, making it the second COVID-19 vaccine to receive regulatory approval in Australia.
 
COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca is provisionally approved and included in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) for the active immunisation of individuals 18 years and older for the prevention of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by SARS-CoV-2. The use of this vaccine should be in accordance with official recommendations and given in two doses 4 to 12 weeks apart. The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation has recommended that the interval between first and second dose is 12 weeks. However, if this interval is not possible, for example because of imminent travel, cancer chemotherapy, major elective surgery, a minimum interval of 4 weeks between doses can be used.

Active and enhanced vaccine safety surveillance for COVID-19 vaccines in Australia

The AusVaxSafety system, coordinated by NCIRS and funded by the Australian Government Department of Health, will be conducting comprehensive safety monitoring of COVID-19 vaccines. This is to ensure the safety of COVID-19 vaccines and provide clinician and consumer confidence in the vaccination program.
 
As part of the national COVID-19 Vaccine Pharmacovigilance Plan, led by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and the Australian Government, AusVaxSafety will work closely with the TGA, the COVID-19 Vaccine Taskforce and all state and territory health departments to ensure that monitoring of COVID-19 vaccine safety is of the highest possible standard in Australia. Our active surveillance system complements other safety surveillance systems that rely on spontaneous reporting at the TGA and state and territory levels.

Australian Immunisation Register Amendment (Reporting) Bill 2020

The Australian Immunisation Register Amendment (Reporting) Bill 2020 has passed both houses of Parliament. The amendments create a requirement for recognised vaccination providers to report to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) information relating to vaccinations they administer and vaccines they are notified about that were given outside Australia. The Bill also creates a power for the Secretary of the Department of Health to require a recognised vaccination provider to give information if they do not comply with this reporting requirement.

Make Smoking History Voice Box Campaign

On Sunday 21 February 2021, Make Smoking History will relaunch its graphic WA-made advertising campaign, ‘Voice Box’.
 
The television advertisement features footage from a real surgery to remove the voice box (larynx) of someone with cancer due to smoking. The campaign was developed following concern from WA health professionals about the low awareness that smoking causes head and neck cancers. Around 77% of laryngeal cancers are caused by smoking, and the treatment can be physically and emotionally devastating.
 
In the advertisements, Dr Rob Wormald, Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon (who performed the surgery) and Dr Hamish Mace, Specialist Anaesthetist, explain how the surgery significantly changes a person’s life. Read more here.

For more information about the Make Smoking History campaign or resources to help your clients to quit, email makesmokinghistory@cancerwa.asn.au

Royal Perth Hospital - Are you receiving your GP Notifications of patient admission, discharge or death?

If not, please re-register for GP Notify by advising, or asking your practice manager to contact, the RPH GP Notify Coordinator by telephone on 9224 3673, fax 9224 2348 (*NEW NUMBERS) or email RPH.GPN.Coordinator@health.wa.gov.au, including:

  • GP name(s) and provider numbers,
  • practice name and address, phone, fax and the generic email for your practice. NB: Due to the Patient Administration System used across WA Health, only one email address can be registered for GP Notify per practice. For this reason, the email address for your practice is preferred over individual email addresses.
  • whether you’d prefer to receive GP Notify by fax or email (secure electronic messaging is not available for GP Notify, although it is used to send inpatient discharge summaries – the GP Notify Coordinator can arrange this if you include your practice’s edi code)

 
Frequently Asked Questions
What is GP Notify?
GP Notify is an automated notification system that informs the patient’s nominated GP (where registered) about patient admission, discharge and death at RPH by email or fax.
 
I used to get GP Notify from RPH–why did they stop?
GP Notify needed to be reset in 2018 due to technical issues, and GP registrations were lost. A number of GPs and practices responded to notices that they needed to re-register, but it appears a large number missed the communication.
 
I asked to get GP Notify by email, but they are being faxed. Why and can I change this?
A technical issue led to all new GP Notify registrations over an extended period being defaulted to fax instead of email. If you would like GP Notifications to be sent to your practice by email, please advise the GP Notify Coordinator as above (noting that only one email address per practice can be used).
