On 21 September, Dr Chris Cunneen and Dr Andrew Lingwood flew to Coffs Harbour to provide education and update the GPs on the recent outbreak of Leptospirosis in the region. Our OEPs presented hour long education sessions to GPs in Woolgoolga and Coffs Harbour. The information sessions were overwhelmingly positive amongst the attending GPs. They also performed onsite work assessments of the farms involved. The improvements in PPE and other measures in the workplace have provided the workers with reduction in the number of new cases reported to local health centres.
