Final report on COVID-19 published

Dear EUSEM Members,

As you know EUSEM organised European update webinars on COVID-19, to help to disseminate essential information and learn from each other. Our respected member Kelly Janssens, together with our president Luis Castrillo worked on final reports from each webinar to analyse and compare data. Now the 4th report is available on the EUSEM Academy with insights in exit strategies and daily measures from Europe, Canada and USA.

Section 1. Overview and strategy survey: Pan- European perspectives
Section 2. General situation of pandemic in each country
Section 3. Hospital situation: ED and ICU
Section 4. Strategic implications for ED and Hospital Management
Section 5. Other lessons learned: Therapy, innovation, public health implications

A very interesting must read for every health care professional!
