About the Webinar:

The global pandemic related to COVID-19 has had a major impact on healthcare systems. Although the rate of infection is much less in children, there are still major impacts on pediatric patients and their families. This webinar discusses the response of three major pediatric institutions (Boston Children’s Hospital, Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta) within the United States. It explores the impacts on policies and process changes, staffing models and psychosocial factors within the acute care setting. Through the use of case studies, it will also discuss challenges faced with discharge planning or transition to post-acute setting as well as clinical implications related to Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C).
