During the COVID-19 pandemic, health emergency preparedness and response has been critical to the success within Australia. The National Critical Care and Trauma Response Centre (NCCTRC) based in Darwin, NT had early experience in planning and response to COVID-19 in the repatriation of Australians from high risk areas - Wuhan China and the Diamond Princess Cruise ship outbreak in Japan. The adoption of a health based model of care for quarantine and isolation developed at the Howard Springs Quarantine Facility informed subsequent support provided by AUSMAT (Australian Medical Assistance Teams) around the country. This project will examine the NCCTRC COVID-19 quarantine and isolation model of care and identify elements contributing to the successful model that can be adopted more broadly for future communicable disease preparedness and response.
