Course Overview


While the COVID-19 situation is still evolving, we are doing everything we can to help healthcare providers in LMICs be prepared to provide life-saving care to patients in need. With this in mind, we have developed a comprehensive tele-education series to provide remote trainings and a platform for discussion and the sharing of best practices in caring for COVID-19 patients in low-resource settings.

In collaboration with Assist International and Stanford Global Anesthesia, we are honored to invite you to participate in our newest series - "COVID-19 Oxygen Therapy and Critical Care ECHO Series for Healthcare Providers in LMICs". Designed for all learners, including students, trainees, nurses and physicians, this series aims to increase preparedness of all providers caring for patients who require oxygen or critical care. 



Welcome to the recorded session 1 of the series: "Considerations for Triage"

Objectives of this course include: 
To encourage discussion amongst providers in resource-constrained settings regarding the best practices when caring for adult and pediatric patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. 
To facilitate patient care that is critical even when outside of an ICU or when ICU resources may not be available. 
To provide clinical tools leading to practice change amongst providers to improve the safety and efficacy of patient care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
