Overview

How Berlin's Charité is managing the pandemic – experiences from radiology

The COVID-19 pandemic has spread across the globe, and Europe has been hit especially hard. In both deaths and total cases, European countries make up four of top five countries globally1. In Europe, different countries have adopted differing strategies to confront this unprecedented healthcare crisis. Many observers point to the approach taken by Germany as particularly effective.

In this webcast, Prof. Dr. Bernd Hamm, Director of Clinic for Radiology at Charité Berlin, will share the innovative measures Charité Berlin has taken in managing the pandemic in the radiology department and beyond - including lessons learned on clinical care, increasing ICU bed capacity, and setting up so called pop-up clinics. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask Prof. Hamm and his team questions.
