    Blood Borne Virus (BBV) Exposure - Clinical Management NT Health Guideline
    Infectious Diseases Department
    This guideline is a reference document containing the rationale and extended information regarding the clinical management of potential occupational and non-occupational exposures to blood borne pathogens. This document should be used in conjunction with the Healthcare Worker Occupational Exposure Incident Management NT Health Guideline. A potential blood borne virus (BBV) exposure occurs when broken skin, conjunctiva or mucosa (oral or genital) is exposed to the blood or body fluids of another person. These include needle stick punctures, scalpel cuts, human bites, scrapes and cuts where the integrity of the skin or mucous membranes have been compromised, sexual contact and splashes of blood or body fluids including amniotic fluid. The purpose of this guideline is to ensure the prompt and appropriate assessment, management, reporting and follow-up of people who have been potentially exposed to BBV and other blood borne pathogens such as syphilis.

    Public Health Management of Crusted Scabies
    (NT Health, 2023-09-27)
    Centre for Disease Control
    Crusted scabies has been notifiable in the Northern Territory (NT) since 2016. It is not currently a notifiable disease in other states and territories. This guideline details procedures for the verification of notifications and their reporting to the NT Notifiable Diseases System (NTNDS), along with the public health management of cases of crusted scabies. The target audience is Centre for Disease Control (CDC) surveillance staff, who are responsible for coordinating the public health response. This guideline can also be used by staff working in other areas who may assist in carrying out the public health response e.g. primary health care. The makeup of the multidisciplinary team involved in a public health response will vary by community, and is dependent on availability and capacity of local service providers. This guideline does not provide advice about the clinical management of crusted scabies cases. For clinical guidance, refer to the Simple, Complicated and Crusted Scabies NT Health Guideline on Policy Guidance Centre (PGC), or CARPA Standard Treatment Manual.
