AMD eBulletin 15 October 2021

President's Post

Greetings to all,

The Adult Medicine Division (AMD) Executive Committee met late September and reviewed the progress of the AMD Council’s work plan. I am pleased we are making good progress despite the current COVID-19 outbreak that has impacted so many aspects of our lives.

I am also pleased to report that progress has been made with the Model of Collaboration project. For those who are not familiar with the project, it seeks to formalise the relationship between specialty societies and the RACP through documentation of a principle-based framework that underpins the collaboration opportunities afforded by these relationships. Over recent months, draft schedules have been created and shared with several AMD-affiliated Specialty Societies. This resulted in meetings with Presidents of several specialty societies to explore the relationship between our organisations. I look forward to meeting with more societies in due course.

In September, I met with the Presidents of the Chapters of Addiction Medicine, Palliative Medicine, and Sexual Health Medicine to discuss our respective work plans and upcoming opportunities for collaboration. It became clear that workforce issues affect each Chapter in varying ways, and it is vital that the College collects data to advocate for all of our specialties. As an item on the AMD Council work plan, I will continue advocating for this.

The RACP Online Community (ROC) open forum officially launched to all RACP members at the end of September. If you have not had an opportunity to log in yet, I strongly encourage you to do so via MyRACP. This community will provide members the ability to network and engage with other members. In the absence of being able to attend face-to-face events, this is a great tool to meet like-minded members. I am looking forward to having additional communities come online – in particular, I look forward to lively discussions in the AMD community when it becomes available towards the end of October. To help you get started, this short video has been created. I look forward to chatting with you online soon.

If you would like to discuss any of the above, I encourage you to reach out to me via the AMD secretariat at

Best wishes,

Professor Don Campbell
Adult Medicine Division President

Recent climate change and health advocacy

The College has been increasingly involved in climate change advocacy over recent months. We recently completed a consultation process with member bodies and confirmed our endorsement of the 2021 MJA-Lancet Countdown Australian Policy Brief. This year’s Brief will focus on sustainable healthcare, the impacts of heat on work and sport, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander co-design, and is expected to be published later this year.

The RACP joined the international health community to sign the #HealthyClimate Prescription letter, which calls for action to address the climate crisis and will be sent to leaders and delegates ahead of COP26. We also recently participated in a joint webinar with the Australian Medical Association, Doctors for the Environment and 13 medical colleges on climate change leadership and action from Australian doctors. You can watch the recording or read the joint letter to the Prime Minister calling for urgent and meaningful action on climate change.

In August, the College provided feedback on the World Health Organization’s (WHO) draft COP26 Special Report: The Health Argument for Climate Action which aims to raise the health voice, health arguments and health urgency of tackling the climate crisis and provides recommendations to take to COP26. The College also provided feedback and suggestions to improve the Victorian Government’s draft Health and Human Services Climate Change Adaptation Action Plan 2022-2026. The draft plan proposes 14 strategic actions that Victoria’s health and human services system can take during the next five years to address current climate change impacts, reduce barriers to adaptation planning and action, and lay the foundations for transformational adaptation.

Looking ahead, the College continues to progress its Climate Change and Health Research Project. Professor Lynne Madden FAFPHM will speak about the early findings on 16 October at the iDEA 2021 conference which runs online from today; Friday, 15 to Sunday, 17 October under the theme Planet, Health and Hope.

RACP submission to the National Medicines Policy Review

The College submission to the Review of the National Medicines Policy (NMP) is available.

The regulation of medicines and medical devices is of great importance to the College and a matter on which we are actively engaging. In this first stage of the NMP development, we advocate for ongoing specialist physician involvement and draw attention to the strong need for this updated policy to promote consistency across all health sectors. We also note the importance of addressing the needs of different populations, building the workforce and improving medication safety. Furthermore, our submission notes the importance of ensuring secure supply chains and safeguarding the environment. The important issue of whether to expand the NMP to include health technologies or revise the definition of medicines is also addressed in the RACP submission.

Pomegranate Health Podcast

Episode 73: Communicating a pandemic


There are many layers of public health interventions that can reduce the rate of transmission of the novel coronavirus. Social distancing, mask wearing, lockdowns and vaccines each nudge the reproduction number down. But you need all of them working together to make a significant impact, and that means you need the community on board.

In this podcast, we discuss the challenges and strategies around communicating public health messages to the public during a time of such high anxiety. Dr Jessica Kaufman is a Research Fellow in the Vaccine Acceptance, Uptake and Policy Research Team at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute who presented her work to the RACP Congress in May. She outlined the principles and clarity, transparency and consistency that are needed to win the public’s trust when tough social restrictions need to be adhered to. 

We also hear an interview with Professor Allen Cheng FRACP, who’s played this game harder than most. As Deputy Chief Health Officer of Victoria, he advised on implementation of the lockdown that brought Melbourne’s second wave to a halt after four long months. If being part of fun police wasn’t enough responsibility, he also co-chaired the COVID-19 Group at the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation which had to weigh up the suitability of the AstraZeneca vaccine as reports of rare side-effects and death were emerging in real time. He describes the fine balance between providing enough information for the public to be able to make informed decisions.
