Caring for people with COVID-19

Supporting Australia’s healthcare professionals with continually updated, evidence-based clinical guidelines

Funding has now been discontinued for the National Clinical Evidence Taskforce and the COVID-19 guidelines as of 30 June 2023.

These guidelines are no longer continually updated but will remain online until the guidance becomes inaccurate and/or no longer reflects the evidence or recommended practice.

For three years, the COVID-19 guideline delivered trusted, up-to-date clinical guidelines and flowcharts for everyone throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Taskforce provided a successful model of rapid evidence surveillance, while implementing a world-first, cross-disciplinary collaboration, including healthcare workers, evidence experts, consumers and 35 peak health bodies across Australia.
