Bushfire crisis resources

The NSW and Federal Governments have created resources for doctors for use during a bushfire crisis.

Bushfires and smoke

Bushfire smoke contributes to poor air quality. More information can be found here.

Extreme Heat

NSW Health provides information for health practitioners on heat-related illnesses here. It also provides information for the general public here and it might be useful to provide to your patients if they have questions.

Mental health advice for Australians returning from disaster-affected areas

The Federal Government has issued information for people returning from disaster-affected areas.

This advice is framed as being for people returning from natural disasters overseas but the information and the contact points listed are also potentially useful for domestic bushfires as well.
