Dear HIM-Interchange readers

Welcome to Issue 2 of 2021 and to a special COVID-19 edition. The HIM-Interchange Subcommittee had planned to release this special edition in 2020, but with the focus on developing the new online platform for HIM-Interchange that didn’t happen. I was concerned that publishing in 2021 may mean we had missed peak relevance. How naïve I was. At the time of publication, many states and territories have recently experienced another lockdown or are currently living in lockdown after the most recent COVID-19 outbreak. The articles in this issue covering topics such as the impacts on personal lives, working arrangements, education and professional experience placements are as relevant as ever

We would welcome you sharing your COVID-19 stories with us, or letting us know if an article has resonated particularly with you, by writing a letter to the editor. Drop us a line at

My thanks to all the authors who have shared their stories with us and also to Emma Barker and Merilyn Riley for their guest editorial.

Enjoy the issue.
