Weill Cornell Medicine – Qatar (WCM-Q) has launched a live webinar series to allow the healthcare community in Qatar to discuss the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, its impact, recommended responses and treatment protocols.
The Covid-19 Live Webinar Clinical Series has been developed by WCM-Q’s Division of Continuing Professional Development. In addition to providing a means for discussing the implications of the pandemic, the webinar series also addresses an urgent need to support the ongoing learning of the local healthcare community while physical distancing measures are being observed, a press statement notes.
The live webinars are accredited locally by the Qatar Council for Healthcare Practitioners, Accreditation Department, and internationally by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education.
Forthcoming speakers include Dr Ibrahim Fawzi Hassan and David Berlin, who will talk about intensive care specialists caring for patients with Covid-19 today; Dr Laith Abu Raddad on June 3 with a talk titled Covid-19: A Scientific Look into the Epidemic and its Future; and Dr Malavika Prabhu on Covid-19 and pregnancy on June 4.
Other scheduled speakers are Devin Thompson on airways management on June 10; Kirsten Ann Uhde on June 17 on prevention of aerosolisation when providing oxygenation and ventilation in the pre-hospital setting; and WCM-Q’s Dr Ravinder Mamtani with a talk titled The Evolving Face of the Covid-19 Pandemic on June 24.
