While the short-term impacts of delayed clinical services during the pandemic are becoming clear, what are the unintended consequences of the health system’s COVID-19 response? Given the potential and known impacts from disrupted clinical services, and an anticipated second wave of COVID-19 in fall 2020, how can we balance our efforts to “re-launch” clinical services at an organizational and system level while optimizing our response and preparedness to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic?
Join the CCHL Hamilton & Area Chapter as we are joined by Dr. Syra Madad (Senior Director of the System-wide Special Pathogens Program at NYC Health + Hospitals; featured on Netflix on Pandemic: How to Prevent an Outbreak) and Dr. Dale Kalina (Director of Infection Prevention and Control at Joseph Brant Hospital) to discuss scenario planning and explore strategies used by other international jurisdictions who have successfully balanced clinical service delivery with COVID response.
