Public Hospitals: Cycle of crisis


On top of the current public hospital crisis, Australia is now facing a COVID-19 crisis which will have a huge impact on public hospital capacity and ways of operating. As this learning demonstrates, public hospitals are not starting from a position of strength, and do not have the capacity to scale up to meet the demands of a COVID-19 crisis or normal influenza season.

This module shares the AMA's analysis of the impact on our public hospitals of easing public health safety measures (PHSMs), using a range of potential scenarios and available data.
