Critical Care Clinical Practice Rounds (OC3PR)
Critical Care Services Ontario (CCSO) is pleased to announce the launch of a clinical webinar series focused on the provision of critical care: Ontario Critical Care Clinical Practice Rounds (OC3PR). This has been prompted by discussions and requests, supported by the Ontario Critical Care Command table, related to providing knowledge support to providers of Critical Care particularly during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
This webinar series is being developed and informed by the OC3PR committee of critical care providers including Dr. Neill Adhikari, Dr. Bernard Lawless, Dr. David Neilipovitz, Dr. Josée Thériault and Dr. Michael Sullivan. Hosted by CCSO, the rounds will provide an opportunity for multidisciplinary critical care teams to come together to share leading practices and engage in discussions with their colleagues, across Ontario’s critical care system, to inform the care of critically ill patients with an emphasis on COVID-19 patients. The series will be moderated by Dr. David Neilipovitz, a critical care intensivist in Ottawa with support from CCSO and the OC3PR committee.
Schedule: Webinars will be scheduled twice per month for 45 minutes. Further details about topics and the schedule will be disseminated in the coming weeks. The first three webinars are scheduled as follows:
1. November 26, 2020, 12 – 12 :45 PM
