A global health crisis requires a global health plan.

A global health crisis requires a global health plan; a consistent, evidence-based and systemic approach with a focus on risk factors and protective factors that support the immune system, general health and mental health, eg calm, normalcy, liberty and autonomy.

It is essential that medical professionals with appropriate and different clinical training, clinical experience and cultural as well as educational backgrounds work together and share expertise to agree on a global health plan without delay. A global health crisis requires a global health approach.

It is essential for a good clinical outcome that clinical recommendations or initiatives include evidence-based protective factors, which include protecting, supporting and strengthening the immune system through initiatives relating to normalcy, liberty, autonomy and avoiding chronic anxiety and high levels of stress.  

First do no harm is an essential focus for good clinical outcomes; this will ensure protection, improved prognosis and decisions in accordance with ethics and human rights laws.  Ensure that all recommendations adhere to this principle.

It is essential that one person or party (with one person responsible) takes the clinical lead and the clinical responsibility in medical crises, this avoids debates and delays.  There is little place in a health crisis for debates or delays, politics or negative emotions; clinical training, experience and research support this approach.  Medical emergencies should be clinically led by a clinician with training in emergency management; with appropriate experience to consider systemic risks and protective factors in high risk and complex contexts and to finalise or amend systemic risk management or action plans without delays.  Medical emergencies require a focus on clinical presentations and relevant systemic bio-psycho-social risk and protective factors, which must be weighed and balanced throughout emergency management by doctors with relevant clinical experience.  

Clinical experience refers to medically trained doctors and specialists who have extensive experience in clinical assessment and treatment, through direct face to face contact with patients, in various high risk and complex settings, including emergencies, ideally in more than one medical domain.  

Leaders with clinical training and clinical experience are essential for good clinical outcomes during clinical assessments, treatment and emergencies.
