CSDS is committed to the delivery of a safe environment

Please do not attend our facility if you are unwell or have symptoms of respiratory infection (fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath).

We use the Check In Qld app to help keep your visit COVID safe.

Delivery of safe clinical education and training

We have made changes to the way we deliver education to prioritise your safety, these changes include:

  • Frequent cleaning/sanitising of all equipment and surfaces during training.
  • Ensuring frequent hand washing with soap and water (or hand sanitiser if available). At a minimum, before entering the class and before returning from breaks.
  • Reduced participant numbers on courses and social distancing measures adhered to, where possible. Please note if attending a simulation based event there may be short periods of time participating in close proximity training.

We adhere to the directions issued from the Chief Health Officer, Queensland and the Health Incident Controller, Metro North; and move between risk escalation levels in accordance with the PPE escalation matrix within the Pandemic Response Guideline: Personal protective equipment in Healthcare delivery.
