ASPR: Ensuring Healthcare Safety Throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic Webinar
June 2, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed healthcare delivery, and healthcare organizations are facing unprecedented challenges as a result of these changes. Healthcare organizations are working quickly to assess the effect of the changes on the methods they use to deliver care to ensure patient and provider safety, and on their day- to-day operations. Understanding the challenges and identifying and implementing mitigation strategies to manage them is essential to community and organizational resilience. Healthcare systems are currently focusing efforts on resuming more traditional operations and continuing to ensure patient and provider safety during a pandemic.
ASPR TRACIE, in collaboration with the HHS/FEMA COVID-19 Healthcare Resilience Task Force, is hosting this webinar to share experiences and lessons learned from innovators in the field. Speakers from healthcare systems who have planned, implemented, and managed operational adaptations in their organizations will describe solutions and successful changes in healthcare delivery processes to strengthen healthcare resilience and maintain safety. Topics will include necessary changes in care delivery that were implemented in response to COVID-19, transparency and learning across organizations during a crisis, the role of healthcare leaders in ensuring workforce safety, leadership rounding during COVID-19, and healthcare safety and human factors challenges posed by COVID-19.
