Surgery in the Shadow of a Pandemic: Voices from the Front Line

As the Covid-19 pandemic swept across the globe in 2020, our healthcare facilities faced a multitude of challenges. Inadequate amounts of PPE, a lack of Covid testing supplies, and ever-changing Covid policies were hurdles that had to be met and overcome as hospitals moved forward in the wake of the pandemic. Join us this week as we talk with Dr. Chris Turner, MD, anesthesiologist and Director of Perioperative Services at UW Health about his role in overseeing the Covid strategy at his facility, hear the lessons that they learned, and find out how they are using those lessons to impact their patient care in 2021.
