CDNA Australian National Guidelines for the Management of Healthcare Workers Living with Blood Borne Viruses who Perform EPPS at Risk of BBVs

  • -

There has been an update to the Guidelines for healthcare workers who perform exposure prone procedures and healthcare workers living with a blood borne virus (BBV).

The Guidelines have been updated to reflect new evidence and are consistent with changes made by other countries. They provide information and recommendations for:

  • all healthcare workers who perform EPPs;
  • healthcare workers who live with a BBV and perform EPPs;
  • treating doctors of healthcare workers with a BBV who perform EPPs; and
  • public health authorities.

The new Guidelines allow healthcare workers living with a BBV, to perform EPPs, provided they abide by these Guidelines.
