COVID Assessment and Management - a practical guide for GPs - 15th January 2021

Dr Camilla Janssen talks to Dr Sarah Kay and Dr Caroline Warren Clinical Governance Medical Leads for the National COVID Clinical Assessment Service (CCAS). CCAS GPs work supporting 111 to assess patients presenting with COVID sounding symptoms remotely and then to manage/signpost/advise appropriately. Sarah and Caroline are well placed as GPs to give us a practical walk-through of appropriate assessment and management of COVID, stratifying COVID risk, advice about remote assessment of breathlessness, identifying red flags, identifying when patients need a F2F review and what the most appropriate setting for this is. Safety net resources and advice as well as discussion from a GP perspective on Oximetry at home. They will advise about resources available for us to use and discuss the appropriateness of prescribing for COVID in the community setting

Children in the time of COVID-19 - 22nd October 2020

What We've Learnt so Far and What We Need to Know to Get Through This Winter. 

In this webinar we will hear from one of the country’s most engaged and engaging Paediatricians.  Dr Sanjay Patel will talk us through in clear terms what the world’s evidence shows around how easily children are infected, their ability to transmit the infection and what we are currently seeing through the communities in our area. Sanjay will also inform us about the extremely rare complications and how to spot them.

With possibly our most challenging winter ahead ever, there will also be a chance to think about how we support our youngest population get appropriate and timely access to primary healthcare.  In particular we will discuss how we can empower those who care for them to make the best decisions of how and when to seek professional health assessment focussing on the pioneering work of Healthier Together.

Virtual Ward with Pulse Oximetry Webinar - 29th Sept 2020

During the initial upsurge of the COVID-19 pandemic, recognising and treating ‘silent hypoxia’ in patients with the virus has been directly linked to the patient’s outcome. The COVID virtual ward and NHS England Primary Care COVID-19 guidance recommend that oxygen saturation monitoring should form an integral part of the COVID-19 pathway to manage patients safely within the community.

To demonstrate the impact of this approach and as part of a second wave of pilot sites nationally, four teams in Wessex have developed virtual wards (2 primary care hot hubs, 1 care homes telemedicine project and a Same day emergency care unit) that use pulse oximeters to allow them to safely monitor confirmed or suspected COVID-19 patients at home whilst providing opportunity to detect early signs of deterioration.

Supported by the LMC and led by Matt Inada-Kim (HHFT) and Karen Kirkham (Dorset CCG), this webinar offers an opportunity to learn from the experiences of these four pilot sites and understand how this approach could be used to support service development across Wessex.
