Insights for the OR Director in the Age of COVID

The COVID pandemic has disrupted the normal functions of operating rooms across the globe. This disruption meant a significant amount of elective cases was cancelled, building up significant demand for the services of the operating room. As we transition into reopening operating rooms, hospitals across the country must service this built up demand while operating under the constant threat of the coronavirus.

This lecture series of CME (Continuing Medical Education) accredited webinars have been developed by experts from Stanford and other institutions across the US. These free, on-demand lectures each lasting 15-40 minutes discuss the specifics of operating room management during the COVID pandemic in morselized pieces to service this gap.
