About this event

  • Date and time Wed 13 May 2020 from 12:45pm to 1:45pm
  • Location Live stream - online
  • Organised by Cardiology, British Society of Echocardiography

The COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented challenge for the health service. The service delivery of echocardiography has had to be adjusted in both inpatient and outpatient settings. This webinar will update the audience on the main adaptations made pre and during COVID-19 and discuss suggestions of optimising delivery of echocardiography post the acute phase of the pandemic. We hope this information will be of value now and in the future should there be another outbreak.

  • To understand the main cardiovascular consequences of COVID
  • To review echocardiographic findings in cardiac manifestations of COVID
  • To identify key adjustments pre / during and post pandemic that can help to guide individual departments service delivery
  • To discuss contemporary data on adjustments made in UK hospitals: The BSE COVID survey
  • To improve knowledge of ways in which future practice can be adjusted in the case of a further pandemic episode

Special rates for difficult times.
