COVID-19 and Crisis Standards of Care: The Fourth Wave and the Future
September 17 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
COVID-19 has fundamentally changed the delivery of health care services worldwide, forcing difficult choices on health professionals and laying bare many pre-existing health, medical, and public health sector frailties. A fourth wave of the pandemic, driven by the Delta variant, extreme shortages of key resources have again brought the necessity of crisis standards of care to the forefront of the minds of many clinicians and patients.
This webinar will feature discussions on past and current challenges in ethically allocating scarce resources in the face of surging demand, the health care staffing crisis seen across the country, and identify possible solutions to real-time issues and ways to ensure fair decisions are made even when systems are strained.
The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session with the webinar audience.
This session will be recorded and be made freely available after the event concludes. No continuing education credit or certificates of attendance will be issued for attending this webinar.
