HHS ASPR Clinical Rounds

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), in collaboration with the National Ebola and Special Pathogens Training and Education Centers (NETEC), and Project ECHO, launched a series of COVID-19 Clinical Rounds on March 24th.

This initiative supports a series of three weekly teleECHO programs:

  1. Critical Care: Lifesaving Treatment and Clinical Operations
  2. Emergency Department: Patient Care and Clinical Operations
  3. EMS: Patient Care and Operations

The aim is to create peer-to-peer learning networks where clinicians who have more experience treating patients with COVID-19 share their challenges and successes with clinicians across the U.S. and around the world with a wide variety of experience treating COVID-19.

Each Clinical Rounds session includes brief presentations from experienced expert clinicians; the presentations have included representatives from

  • Bellevue Hospital, NYC,
  • Emory University
  • University of Minnesota
  • University of Washington
  • Nebraska Medicine
  • and more

Representatives from more than 15 relevant national professional organizations round out the panel of expert discussants. The majority of each session is spent in discussion related to Q & A generated by the participants. As of mid-April more than 7500 people from all 50 states and more than 30 countries have participated in the sessions.
