5. Health information

Staff and students with known medical conditions are encouraged to disclose their conditions and recommended first aid responses to the Medical Staff, Doctor or Campus Nurse. The health information disclosed shall be kept confidential in accordance with Privacy Legislation requirements.

Records if kept must be in a locked drawer and accessed only by Medical Staff. See Health Information Privacy Protection Principles.

If the disclosed condition appears to be well controlled, a serious outcome is not likely and the first aid response is within the competence and confidence level of the NFAO then the Medical Staff should develop and document a simple First Aid Response Plan in consultation with the person. This plan should be made available to a NFAO if an emergency situation arises.

The University will endeavour to assist persons with disabilities, ill-health or medical conditions with arrangements to keep them safe in their work/study environment.
