The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many healthcare systems to adopt crisis practices that would normally be considered a compromise to usual standards of care. These have occurred across all aspects of surge capacity including space, staff, and supplies. Strategies to address patient surge management and the allocation of scarce resources, such as Crisis Standards of Care (CSC) are policy, regulatory, and systems changes implemented when the duration of crisis care practices is prolonged. Many scarce resource allocation strategies have been necessary during COVID-19. Reducing the burden on the healthcare system by implementing population-based interventions and coordinating within healthcare systems, healthcare coalitions, and state and regional response agencies is critical to minimizing resource scarcity impacts in a given area.
Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response TRACIE is hosting this webinar where speakers will discuss clinical consultation versus triage support, systems-level information sharing, coalition-level coordination activities, and recent publications/resources to help with planning efforts (e.g., CSC: Lessons Learned from New York City Hospitals’ COVID-19 Experience, ASPR TRACIE COVID-19 CSC Resources).There will also be significant time provided for participant Q&A.
