Join us for our the first of American College of Healthcare Executives – NJ Chapter’s multi-section summer webinar series! This series of webinars has been designed to help educate our healthcare leaders and to stay current during this unprecedented period of time.

“COVID-19: What We Learned – Staffing/People Resource”

Emergency management requires precise identification and allocation of staff to align capabilities and capacity with the need to effectively deliver care for the community. The COVID-19 outbreak caused a substantial shift in the availability of staff and resources, and the accessibility of timely delivery of care. In response to the evolving needs, organizations have shifted staff in a variety of ways to ensure they were able to effectively screen, triage and care for patients. This webinar will provide strategies and tactics of how organizations adjusted their staffing structure to ensure that the most appropriate level of care is delivered during a medical surge such as the COVID-19.
