The Tasmanian Foundation for Occupational Medicine is the “Not For Profit” Association that supports the development of Occupational Medicine in Tasmania. The Foundation assists with the identification of suitable training opportunities and funding for training activities with a focus on scholarships for doctors wanting to train as Occupational Physicians. The Foundation expects it will have an additional role in promoting the value of Occupational Medicine input in COVID-19 response for Tasmania, particularly in relation to prevention activity for Health Care Workers and other high risk occupational groups.
In addition to Dr Sharman’s volunteer activities as the Foundation’s Secretary and Public Officer, Hobart Occupational Medicine has agreed to assist the Foundation by donating funds raised from a loading applied to some types of medico-legal work for the next 6 months. This financial support will assist the Foundation develop a Secretariat to enable it conduct fund raising activities.
