QLD Health Requirements
What are the requirements for me as a pharmacy student?
Queensland Health has strict requirements for all Health Care Workers to ensure patient and worker safety.
Undertaking Experiential Placements at Queensland Health sites is an academic component of this program and will require you to:
- Comply with Queensland Health’s Essential Placement Requirements and UQ's Immunisation Policy
- Show proof of vaccination against Hepatitis B or serology showing Hepatitis B status (eg. Immune/infected).
- Be aware of the disclosure responsibilities and work practices related to Hepatitis B and C, and HIV
- Complete the QLD Health Student Orientation Checklist and the Immunisation and Infection Control Declaration, and return them to the School of Pharmacy office with your Hepatitis B status evidence as soon as it is completed. You will need to have already received your Blue Card to be able to complete the Checklist.
Note: By completing and signing the Queensland Health Orientation Checklist, you are agreeing to comply with the policies and requirements of the following areas while on a Qld Health placement:
- Professional Behaviour and Responsibilities
- Code of Conduct
- Confidentiality, Privacy and Documentation
- Workplace Health & Safety Issues
- Blue Card Requirements
- Cultural Diversity
It is also strongly recommended that you are immunised against:
- Varicella Zoster virus (Chickenpox)
- Pertussis (Whooping Cough)
- Rubella (MMR vaccine)
Where can I receive my vaccinations?
The UQ Health Service bulk-bills through Medicare, and UQ Health Care bulk bills if you have a current health-care card but you are responsible for the cost of the vaccine used for immunisation.
Enquiries regarding these forms should be forwarded to the School of Pharmacy Placements Coordinator:
