As the COVID-19 global pandemic has entered its third week, our healthcare providers are realizing the dramatic impact this has had on how we deliver care. Our lives have been touched not only professionally, but certainly personally as well. The uncertainty that this pandemic has driven into our lives is equally matched by the resiliency and ingenuity of our healthcare providers and larger community to come together to face this head on. In this episode, we will cover the current epidemiology of COVID-19, answer listener submitted questions and talk about the creative delivery of primary care that you could consider implementing in your practice as you navigate the pandemic.
On the podcast we have previously covered the clinical presentation of the coronavirus in pediatrics, what providers should do if their clinical suspension is high and approaches to pediatric care during the mitigation phase of this pandemic – you can go back and listen to those discussions on Season 3, Episodes 31, 36 and 38.
Today we are fortunate to be joined again on the podcast by Sam Dominguez, MD, PhD a pediatric infectious diseases physician at Children’s Hospital Colorado and Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Infectious Diseases at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
