With increasing numbers of positive COVID-19 cases rising daily, and increasing hospital admission and exposure rates, many healthcare providers are faced with the reality of treating or admitting COVID-19 cases, often with limited access to testing. There is therefore a need to rapidly educate Clinicians and health workers on the medical management of this condition.
People to People, Inc. (P2P) and Anadach Group invite you to participate in our webinar series on the Medical Management in COVID-19, drawing from countries earlier in the Pandemic than most African countries. The goal of this webinar is to share clinical and management practice and create a platform for healthcare professionals to interact on clinical management and related across several areas. Given that the clinical experience during the COVID-19 is rapidly evolving, it is important that clinicians are aware the best way to protect themselves and their patients during the pandemic.
The clinical spectrum of COVID-19 varies from asymptomatic or pauci-symptomatic forms, to clinical conditions characterized by respiratory failure that may necessitate mechanical ventilation and support in an ICU, to multi-organ and systemic manifestations in terms of sepsis, septic shock, and multiple organ dysfunction syndromes (MODS).
Our series of webinars which will cover issues of interest to physicians, nurses, other healthcare workers and management involved in directly managing COVID-19 cases in their respective countries. Most of the specialists practicing outside Africa also have experience in medical practice in at least one African country. The first webinar focused on perspectives on clinical management from an Infectious Diseases, Critical Care/ Pulmonology and Family Practice Specialists. Future webinars will cover other specialties. The next (third) webinar in a fortnight will focus on “Diagnostic challenges in adults and children, including testing”.
Please register here to participate.
The discussion will be facilitated by the Anadach team and P2P.
