Please be advised that the QH Spirometry Training Workshop scheduled for the 29 May in Cairns and 6 June in Bundaberg have been cancelled.
We have taken into consideration the latest federal and state government directives and our local Health and Hospital service recommendations when making this decision. The recent identification of community spread of the virus and the directive to reduce all travel between regions in QLD has impacted on all non-essential services, including the provision of spirometry training.
As spirometry is an aerosolising procedure, and as such is high risk we ask you also to consider when to use it in your clinics. In our laboratories we are only testing limited cases and have minimised routine testing. Please ensure you protect yourselves appropriately with PPE if testing of patients /clients is considered essential.
With regards to future workshops we will prioritise your registration to workshops scheduled on the following dates. At this stage these are still going ahead but if the need arises we may need to cancel further workshops.
