ESICM N&AHP COVID-19 Marathon Webinar – Thursday 9 July 2020, 14.00-17.30 hrs CEST

Throughout the pandemic, nurses and allied health professionals in ICUs have had to take on more and more responsibilities, while trying to understand and adapt to a disease that has presented new challenges for all those responsible for patient care.

The current health crisis has also provided opportunities for learning, creativity and research, as well as inter-disciplinary collaborations.

As we discover more about COVID-19 and adapt our care practices and measures, we are beginning to look back and reflect on the lessons learned.

A special COVID-19 Marathon Webinar took place on Thursday 9 July, from 14.00-17.30 hrs CEST, when experts presented and answered questions on topics including:

  • Patient rehabilitation
  • Patient communication
  • Delirium
  • Physiotherapy challenges
  • Nursing education requirements
  • Staffing models
  • Building resilience
  • Family interactions
  • Patient care
  • What we have learned as a profession
