“Meet the expert” – global, clinical seminar series

Welcome to the – “Meet the expert” – global, clinical seminar series which we co-host in collaboration with King’s Health Partners in London. The seminars focus on the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic for clinical teams and the care of patients. Taking place once a week on Tuesdays at 2pm (CET), each session will have a 15-minute expert presentation, followed by 15 minutes for questions and answers with the speaker.

In the absence of fully established peer-reviewed data, learnings from clinical practice have been vital during the pandemic. That’s why in April 2020, the King’s Health Partners Education Academy began the online series bringing together experts from around the world to discuss their learning from COVID-19 and answer pressing questions about how to manage patients.

Prof Francesco Dazzi, Vice Dean (International), King’s College London, and Prof Anne Greenough, Director of Education and Training at King’s Health Partners, play key roles in delivering this innovative series. They said:

“Many of us are directly or indirectly involved in managing COVID-19 patients with little headspace to go through the often unselected information to which we are exposed. In the absence of fully established peer-reviewed data, clinical decisions have to take advantage on what is learned in clinical practice. That is why we have asked experts from around the world to share their experience and discuss it with us.”
