COVID-19 Webinar #2: Facing a second wave while re-establishing normal operations

4. September 2020 / 13:0017:00


A webinar of the European Health Property Network hosted by Ramboll, walkerproject and White arkitekter.

4 September 2020, 13:00 – 15:00 CET

Facing a second wave while re-establishing normal operations: the roles of leadership, staff resilience and intelligent modelling.

As the Covid-19 pandemic has unfolded across the world, healthcare systems have been required to make radical adjustments to their operating procedures, their models of care and their hospital capacity in many areas, including intensive, respiratory and critical care. Many systems must now juggle planning for a second wave of the virus with re-establishing a range of services and care pathways.  Resilience has become the watchword.

An international working group consisting of the European Health Property Network, walkerproject, White Architects and Ramboll has worked on deriving strategies for resilient healthcare systems based on 30+ case studies. In the first webinar, held on May 29th 2020, different strategies for rapid adaptation were examined, with the ambition to provoke further exchange and discussion.

This resulted in proposals for three additional webinars that will be launched during autumn/winter 2020. In addition to these, the working group will publish a field guide on how to bolster resilience by preparing staff, systems, space and supply chains for the challenges of a pandemic situation.  The associated data and analysis will be shared on a dedicated website, alongside a broad range of case studies.  This will be an important future resource for health policy professionals, senior healthcare leaders and infrastructure experts.

On September 4th, we invite you to join the second webinar focusing on staff resilience. Discussions will be triggered by case examples from Europe and the United States, triggered by the following questions:

  • What were the biggest challenges for the clinical and non-clinical professions?
  • What responses did leaders deploy?
  • What were successful strategies for decision making, escalation/de-escalation and capacity planning?
  • What are the lessons learnt regarding the physical and psychosocial work environment?

We have confirmed speakers from Promodel (USA) on the use of simulations for decision-making during a crisis, and North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust on leading innovation, community engagement and meaningful support for staff during the pandemic.  Additional presenters, potentially presenting cases from Switzerland and Sweden, will be added shortly.
