Posted by

The Coronavirus impact is wide-reaching and each day its tentacles feel worse than the day before. With no vaccine to prevent COVID-19 or medication to treat it, health officials and government leaders are bracing themselves for an outbreak with non-pharmacological interventions. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has suggested social distancing which includes avoiding crowds and staying home when you are sick.

Join this co-sponsored RBMA/AHRA webinar and hear how these professionals are handling the COVID-19 crises at their facilities. Your panelists include Amanda Lynn Garlock, R.T. (R)(MR) (Providence Regional Medical Center, Everett, WA), Gina Greenwood, CRA, FAHRA, (UW Health in Madison, WI); and Linda Massaro, RN, BSN, CHSP (Center for Diagnostic Imaging/Insight Imaging). Their different experiences range from caring for the first and largest outbreak in the US to pandemic preparedness planning and cover the spectrum of patient care settings.

Targeted audience: hospital administrators, managers, practice managers, and frontline supervisors.

This is a free webinar and you will leave knowing how to:

  • Review steps taken in healthcare organizations and radiology departments to mitigate circumstances
