EXCELLENT use of graphics and State references. May need to update to include the Covid-19 practices for waste disposal especially in the community. Staff in the various healthcare systems (Home Care; NDIS; Community Centres) have inconsistency in the disposal methods. Also, NDIS is expecting that Waste be disposed of at waste management centres. What does a household do without such a licence if they are on managed plans? Several facilities have vastly different policies. This session was very clear and helpful.

Sometimes I find it really hard to make time for my learning, but I was blown away by how easy it is with the Ausmed app. I can fit it in during breaks or on the bus to work.
