National COVID-19 Clinical Evidence Taskforce

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

The Taskforce brings together the peak health professional bodies across Australia whose members are providing clinical care to people with COVID-19.

In collaboration with the Australian Living Evidence Consortium, Monash University, Cochrane Australia and other partner organisations, Burnet researchers are supporting continuous evidence surveillance to identify and rapidly synthesise emerging research, in order to provide national, evidence-based guidelines for the clinical care of people with COVID-19.

The guidelines address questions that are specific to managing COVID-19 and cover the full disease course across mild, moderate, severe and critical illness.

See the taskforce website for more information.
