Conference Summary

1st "Crisis in healthcare" conference is organized by Hedra. This online CME course will be held from Apr 10 - 11, 2021.

Course Description:
This conference brings together academics, educators, clinicians, practitioners, and others from a wide variety of fields, for the collaborative, multidisciplinary examination of the ways in which the pandemic has impacted education and medical/nursing education. Abstracts are peer-reviewed. Themes and issues for the conference involve, but are not limited to:

Stream A: The emotional crisis among clinicians and practitioners
What are the mental health consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic on healthcare workers? What has happened to their sleep, diet, relationships, parenting, drug and alcohol abuse, depression, and suicide? What coping mechanisms are there? How should employers, governments, families, and friends react over the longer term? How can managers and administrators assist their teams to handle stress and anxiety - what can they do for themselves? How has the pandemic shaped the emotional work of providing care? Where has it led to a sense of moral injury, as employers, workplaces, and governments use healthcare personnel without proper regard for their safety and wellbeing? To what extent does this crisis reflect the offloading of healthcare from the public to private providers? How has it shaped set emotional issues in healthcare - empathy in medical internship and beyond, exhaustion, PTSD, the loss of face time in virtual relationships, and resiliency?

Stream B: Paediatric care and the pandemic
How can we support pediatric patients and their families in this crisis? What are the children’s and families’ psychosocial needs? How can we assure that ethical decision-making frameworks work for palliative care and the provision of care to vulnerable youth? How can we strengthen low-income families or families in economic distress, families concerned about bringing their children to a hospital for vaccination, routine visits, or other healthcare needs in case they become infected with COVID-19? How can we diagnose and treat pediatric isolation, neglect, anxiety, emotional trauma, PTSD, or the developmental delays caused by social distancing?

Stream C: Virtual consultations
Virtual consultation has been extensively utilized in the pandemic, and are likely to remain once the virus has been handled. What are the potentials, and limitations of online methods? To what extent can telecommunications stand-in for face-to-face relationships? How does it impact clinicians’ and practitioners’ workload and pay? How does it alter the roles of office staff, how we communicate with team members, hospital administration, insurance companies, and others? How has this modified patient expectations? How does this trend interact with the public’s use of online medical information and resources, more broadly? How is it changing their understanding of clinical roles and functions? How can we improve telemedicine?

Stream D: Data analytics and the pandemic
In order to discover how the pandemic is impacting medical and nursing students, we are soliciting papers from medical and nursing educators. These papers ask to use structured interviews and evaluate the data with content analysis software. Conference participants interested in cooperating with this effort will publish papers in a journal special issue with HEDRA advisory board members
