The COVID-19 pandemic has brought medical ethics to the foreground, as many have had to make complex decisions during this crisis as individuals, health care providers, public health leaders and elected officials. During the next installment of our Virtual Grand Rounds on June 8, 2021, we will hear from experts on medical ethics who will discuss how these ethics relate to the individual and collective experience of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Key questions will include: How do we evaluate our response to the pandemic as a nation? As a global community? What issues are emerging as a partially vaccinated society that is trying to re-open? What have we learned from this crisis and how can we codify those learnings to be better prepared in the future?
We will also welcome back Erica Pan, M.D., California State Epidemiologist, who will give updates on the state of the COVID-19 pandemic nationally and in California, as well as the evolving public health guidelines as the state moves toward fully reopening. She will also review the progress of the vaccine rollout and the evolving story of COVID-19 variants.
The 90-minute grand rounds webinars are free and open to all interested clinicians. Participants can receive 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Clinicians likely to encounter COVID-19 in their practice settings (e.g., front line physicians, nurse practitioners or physician assistants) are encouraged to join the monthly case-based presentations, which will include expert panel discussions and audience participation.
If you are unable to attend the live webinar, they will be available for on-demand playback at covidroundsca.org.
