All of us have lived through unprecedented times as the COVID-19 pandemic has spread around the world. No one has been spared the unparalleled health and community consequences of this unique disease. Fortunately, with social distancing, social tracking of exposed patients, and novel medical therapy, the curve of the pandemic is beginning to flatten. We are on the road to recovery. We can now begin to evaluate patients in the office and re-open our ambulatory and surgical suites.
This webinar will enable you to plan for the unprecedented changes ahead, retool your office visits, and keep safe in the operating room. Join us as you learn the A-Z’s for equipping your practice with telemedicine and learn how future meetings may pivot from in-person to virtual. This webinar will include acclaimed surgeons and internists who can inform you of new safe surgical techniques to employ during minimally invasive surgery and learn how to optimize your surgical schedule for efficacy.
At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to: 1) Discuss the impact that COVID-19 has had on traditional medical practices and office visits; 2) demonstrate how to employ telemedicine visits effectively; and 3) explain the steps necessary to perform minimally invasive surgery safely.
