Virtual Seminar: Caring for Patients after Hospital Discharge during a Pandemic

A Conversation with Nina O'Connor, MD, Ashley Ritter, PhD, CRNP, Joshua Uy, MD, and Rachel Werner, MD, PhD

MISSED THIS SEMINAR? Watch the recording here.

One of the challenges in the current pandemic is how, and where, to properly care for COVID-19 patients once they leave the hospital. Many patients recovering from COVID-19 will need ongoing care to recover from hospitalization, but current models of post-acute in nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, and home health agencies are ill-suited to care for them. How can we minimize the risk posed of transmission from post-acute patients to vulnerable long-term residents of these facilities? How can we support families in caring for these patients at home, given the inadequacy of the home health care workforce and the continuing mandate to distance socially? Join Penn LDI as a panel of experts explores solutions to the post-acute care crisis posed by COVID-19.

This virtual seminar is free and open to the public. Please see instructions on how to join below.
