Knowledge is power: how clinical knowledge can transform quality of care

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, clinicians are overstretched, limiting their ability to keep up with the latest medical data and updated information. The urgency of the situation at hand also means that clinical findings are published at very early stages of research. Clearly, while speed is crucial, ensuring accuracy and rigour of the findings is also of the highest importance. How can hospitals balance these needs and support frontline care providers with a reliable, constantly refreshed database of information?

Agenda

The unprecedented amount of health information available across hundreds of online and offline resources means patients and clinicians are under even more pressure to find relevant, accurate information quickly and in real-time.

So how can we equip our clinicians and patients with the latest clinical knowledge, while battling the ‘infodemic’ of misinformation?

Join this engaging, interactive conversation with key leaders in the industry as they discuss how to:

      1. Leverage health resources to improve decision-making and clinical effectiveness
      2. Quickly identify trusted sources of information amongst the ‘deluge’ of clinical information
      3. Share clinical information with patients to improve engagement and health outcomes
