RECENT ANNOUNCEMENTS

We are pleased to announce the launch of Fusion Clinical Research. A new business that works with Contract Research Organisations (CROs), Sponsors and a network of General Practitioners (GPs) to provide medical trials in a community setting. We invite you to visit the new Fusion Clinical Research website and to share this wonderful new initiative with your contacts.

CMAX supports the #dontwaitmate campaign by the CCC (Continuity of Care Collaboration).

We are excited to announce an increase in our bed capacity to 66 inpatient beds.

#CovidSafe at CMAX

CMAX is complying with all of the latest federal and state government public health directives, and closely monitoring for any updates. All staff, volunteers, participants and stakeholders are expected to be up to date with covid-19 vaccinations and vaccination status is checked prior to entry to our facilities.

 Unwell individuals - staff and participants - are asked to stay home and get tested; anyone presenting to CMAX who is not well is strongly recommended to return home.

Our core business involves healthy volunteers/participants, as opposed to individuals with medical conditions or concerns. Face masks are mandatory for everyone on-site, at all times, and face masks are supplied to all staff, volunteers and participants. Social distancing is maintained and frequent hand washing is strongly encouraged; hand sanitiser is available throughout the facility for everyone to use.

 • Pre-entry rapid antigen testing and temperature checks occur for all participants checking-in for their in-house stay.

• Pre-entry rapid antigen testing and temperature checks occur for all volunteers/participants attending spirometry encounters.
