CDC COCA Call: Making Practical Decisions for Crisis Standards of Care at the Bedside During the COVID-19 Pandemic - 12/17/2020 @ 2pm-3pm

Lisa Volk and Tarrah Quinlan in Clinical & Quality

Healthcare operations and healthcare services delivery change due to scarcity of required resources under pervasive (e.g., pandemic influence, COVID-19) and catastrophic disaster (e.g., earthquake, hurricane) conditions. The standards of care proposed under these unique and challenging conditions must be a reasonable approach to healthcare service delivery that merges public health, ethical, and medical care demands.

During this COCA Call, experts from Hennepin Healthcare and Bellevue Hospital will present background on the Institute of Medicine (IOM) framework, Guidance for Establishing Crisis Standards of Care for Use in Disaster Situations (IOM, 2009), and identify how Crisis Standards of Care apply to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
