Maintaining medical services in times of pandemics

4 CME points

Dear GTP members and interested colleagues,

The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic is having a world-wide effect on the provision of medical services. We as the GTP are constantly adapting our projects to meet the requirements of the pandemic response and we are observing the changes happening within our global network.

We would like to invite you to join us for an online seminar which will introduce you to some of the concepts the GTP has adapted as well as to reports from some of our international partners on how the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has affected their fields of work. Some interesting case reports will add a clinical scope to the seminar.
