LESSONS FROM COVID-19 - A FREE, VIRTUAL CONFERENCE
The Science, Medicine, Technology and People
Risky Business Events, in collaboration with The BMJ and Great Ormond Street Hospital, supported by the Medical Protection Society, have partnered to create this free, virtual conference for the multidisciplinary teams in the pandemic frontline.
The idea of the event is to provide front-line clinical professionals who have been working flat out and exhausted with a succinct latest update on the science, the medicine, the technology and the people (well being) with respect to the Covid-19 crisis.
We anticipate this event to be very popular so encourage you to book as soon as possible to guarantee your virtual seat.
Information overload has never been worse. Who can keep up with the literature while working long, often emotionally charged shifts? Our experts sum up the latest on the virus, drug trials, vaccines and what predictive modelling tells us to expect next.
Senior doctors and nurses share lessons on how their clinical care of Covid patients continues to evolve, and how compassionate care for patients and families remains possible, despite the obstacles.
How video conferencing has transformed healthcare, what are the risks? hacking and cyber-security, latest update on the tracing app and how Formula 1 raced from cars to ventilators.
Experts advise on how best to support staff, patients and families as we travel through uncharted territory. Ideas are shared from other industries such as The Wingman Project being run in big hospitals by frontline BA crew. The increased mortality in our BAME communities will also be discussed and the challenges of risk assessing our staff.
