COVID Oximetry at home in Yorkshire & Humber

Monitoring people for early signs of deterioration from COVID-19 has the potential to improve clinical outcomes. The National Incident and Response Board (NIRB) has approved nationwide implementation of the COVID Oximetry @home model. The Yorkshire and Humber Patient Safety Collaborative will be providing support and setting up a regional network.

This event is aimed at front line clinicians, senior managers and key support colleagues who will be responsible for commissioning and delivering this work.

1. Background and overview of the COVID Oximetry @home programme
2. Learning from the pilot COVID virtual ward project in Tees Valley
3. Managing deterioration – the impact of early recognition and intervention on COVID-19 outcomes
4. COVID-19 in the Emergency Department
5. Post-acute COVID-19 – recognising potential complications and supporting recovery
6. Next steps – the role of the Patient Safety Collaborative
