Sandpiper Bag Governance and Agreement

For many rural doctors, provision of pre-hospital emergency care in their community is often considered part of their 'usual practice'.

As autonomous professionals, Sandpiper Clinicians are trusted to act within their scope-of-practice and/or under existing credentialing requirements. Sandpiper Australia encourages clinicians to integrate into existing networks of emergency service care – such as State trauma networks, ambulance, retrieval services. It may then be expedient to operate under organisational governance.

Sandpiper Australia ask that Sandpiper Clinicians agree to certain conditions, including holding responsibility for re-stocking of their Sandpiper Bag, ensuring appropriate use and operation within their existing scope-of-practice.

The Sandpiper Bag Agreement sets out the broad terms of Sandpiper Bag clinician governance for individuals and organisations. Please note, Sandpiper Australia will not be able to supply you with a Sandpiper Bag until we have received your signed Sandpiper Bag Agreement.
