NEW: Coping strategies for a sleep and ventilation service, COVID and beyond.

COVID-19 has brought about an opportunity to review the way that we interact with patients and how technology can support patient care in the future. This virtual roundtable provides an opportunity to share best practice and ideas of how we cope with continuing to see patients at the moment, and then how we might manage the inevitable backlog, without compromising the quality of our services. For the longer term, this is an opportunity to consider how we deliver effective sleep services and manage waiting lists.

On Friday, 5th June the OSA Alliance** hosted a virtual roundtable to discuss COVID and its impact on patient care, now and in the future. To hear experiences and views from sleep consultants and physiologists around the UK, click here.
