CRNAs and a world-wide pandemic: where have we come from, how did we get here and how will we utilize our learning and leadership principles to make strong decisions that support our team to minimize the risk of infection, morbidity and mortality related to COVID-19 or future pandemic? This presentation will look at the COVID 19 pandemic and impact on the delivery of anesthesia services related to practice management decision making and leadership based on infection control and prevention guidelines.
Servant leadership and adaptive leadership skills have never been more important to address the COVID 19 pandemic in anesthesia services. The necessity to maintain high standards in the anesthesia while working within the reality of the available PPE, ever changing guidance from CDC, NIH, and other place department leaders in many times difficult positions to find the correct balance. This presentation will provide the learner with the opportunity to link and integrate infection control and prevention guidelines with practice management and servant leadership principals to help guide decision making for patient and staff safety and well-being in the face of the COVID 19 healthcare world.
