Just Posted: Webinar Q & A

ASPR TRACIE, in collaboration with the HHS/FEMA COVID-19 Healthcare Resilience Task Force, hosted the Ensuring Healthcare Safety throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic webinar where speakers shared recent experiences and lessons learned while adjusting their healthcare systems in order to maintain safety within their organizations. Check out the webinar Q & A documentwhich includes responses to all questions received.

Resources for Hospitals During Civil Unrest

Protests began in Minneapolis and other cities across the U.S. after the in-custody death of George Floyd. ASPR TRACIE spoke with Dr. John Hick, our Senior Editor and Hennepin Healthcare Emergency Medicine Physician, and Seth Jones, Hennepin Healthcare System’s Emergency Preparedness Program Manager, to better understand how days of civil unrest affected hospital components, including the existing COVID-19 response. Check out this article and the related ASPR TRACIE TA response which provides resources related to protecting community hospitals and providing patient care during civil unrest.

Healthcare System Considerations for Resumption of Services during COVID-19

This resource highlights interrelated issues for the healthcare system to consider as they address their current status, restore services that have been curbed, maintain readiness for potential future waves of COVID-19 patients, and adapt to improve their operations based on lessons learned.

Alternate Care Site (ACS) Resources

  • New: Alternative Care Sites-The Federal Experience in New York City: Learn about the experiences and lessons learned from federal staff who worked in the ACS located in New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

COVID-19 Clinical Rounds Peer-to-Peer Virtual Communities of Practice are a collaborative effort between ASPR, the National Emerging Special Pathogen Training and Education Center (NETEC), and Project ECHO. These interactive virtual learning sessions aim to create a peer-to-peer learning network where clinicians from the U.S. and abroad who have experience treating patients with COVID-19 share their challenges and successes; a generous amount of time for participant Q & A is also provided. Three webinar topics are covered every week:

  • EMS: Patient Care and Operations (Mondays, 12:00-1:00 PM ET)
