Predictions on healthcare travelers needed in Australia for immediate and future staffing assistance? Any thoughts on particular specialties that can offer Australia the most help within the next couple of years?

Huh?

 

We are a first world country.  While the fires have been devastating it is mostly bushland and farmland that has burned. 

There has been only a small loss of human life and injuries reported.  The most impact will be long term respiratory issues and PTSD.  As a country with a decent public hospital system much of this will be managed on an outpatient basis.

Thank you for your reply.

Yes, the Australia fires appear devastating from what I have seen from media coverage here in the USA. I planned on independently contracting PRN home health work in the Australian bush/farmlands this year, or next. However, now that a national disaster has been declared, I am preparing how I may need to adapt this plan. 

I appreciate your first-hand wisdom on the topic. I admire the resilient spirit Aussie's show during this tragedy and I pray relief for your community, God-speed.

Please read this.  https://bbc.in/2t70YmH there is so much misinformation about the fires and I think you have bought into some of it, that major metropolitan or country towns are being burned to the ground.  This is not the case currently. 

Here is another good site https://theconversation.com/bushfires-bots-and-arson-claims-australia-flung-in-the-global-disinformation-spotlight-129556
