The educational event aims to reorient practitioners in the community setting to the evolving epidemiology of RSV in Australia. While RSV can lead to children becoming severely unwell and hospitalised, the majority of children will be assessed in the first instance by their GP.
As RSV lay relatively dormant during COVID, most clinician focus was on the identification of that illness during the COVID pandemic. Relaxed COVID restrictions has resulted in changing RSV patterns and severity of infection. It is important to re-focus attention to non-COVID respiratory infections in children, with particular emphasis on children at particular risk of poor outcomes. Use of evidence-based care in the community and signals for escalating care to tertiary settings is called for. Emerging treatments and preventive measures will play a role in mitigating the effect of this disease.
