Owens & Minor invites the healthcare community to join us for this continuing education webinar: Preventing the Past from Becoming Our Future: Lessons Learned from the COVID-19 Pandemic-A Call to Action.
This webinar program will review the core elements of preventing disruptions in the delivery of healthcare services during a pandemic or other unanticipated influx of patients. During the COVID-19 pandemic, patients’ lives were dramatically impacted with reduced access to care and countless healthcare providers were forced to use PPE for extended periods of time. This program will provide a “proactive” approach to ensuring the healthcare delivery system and supply chain are prepared for the next “big event” and to ensure continuing continuity of care delivery.
The objectives of the webinar include:
- Discuss the most needed changes to prevent the healthcare impacts of a pandemic to the clinical operations scheme
- Review proactive approaches to addressing lapses in care delivery during outbreaks and pandemics
- Discuss the needed focus on building the healthcare workforce to prepare for unanticipated influxes of patients and disruptions in supply chain management
