Doctors Manitoba’s Advice to Physicians on PPE
It’s important you are protected. Guidelines that are changed regularly, and orders that go undelivered are frustrating and can erode your confidence in the provincial health system. We are supporting you by making it as easy as possible to stay up-to-date on the guidelines and your obligations as a physician, pressing for predictable and reliable PPE deliveries from Shared Health, and identifying PPE supply alternatives for you as well.
With these new guidelines, our advice is to reflect on how you can best implement and follow the guidelines in your practice setting, recognizing each is unique in different ways.
You can contact us for help. For physicians in immediate need, we have a limited supply of some medical and non-medical grade PPE.
As always, we want to know what you think. How will the new PPE guidelines impact your practice? How do you want Doctors Manitoba to respond on behalf of the medical profession? Get in touch and let us know.
