ACSA COVID-19 Webinar: Lessons from BaptistCare + Crisis Media Management
19 March:
How would you cope with a COVID-19 outbreak? BaptistCare NSW & ACT CEO Ross Low generously takes us through how his organisation handled the recent COVID-19 outbreak at their Dorothy Henderson Lodge facility.

We all recognise that sometimes the worst-case scenario happens and you’re on the front-page for all the wrong reasons. Peter Stahel, Associate Director from ACSA’s media partner Essential Media will provide how-to strategies on managing the media during a crisis to ensure people in our care, families and communities get the information they need.

We will continue to announce details of additional webinars designed to inform members of the latest information and advice about the virus generally, infection control, employee relations and other issues we know you are facing on a daily basis.
