The Management of Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) has intensified its efforts to continually sensitise its staff and the general public on COVID-19 and related issues as it hosted the 3rd edition of its monthly webinar which is aimed at mitigating the effects of the dreaded disease in the society.

 

LASUTH, webinar on COVID-19

Welcoming the participants and guest speakers, the Chief Medical Director, LASUTH, Prof. Adetokunbo O. Fabamwo said that LASUTH as a tertiary health facility in the epic centre during this pandemic believes that it has the responsibility of information dissemination through series like this; “we believe that with our core of expertise, we are in a highly placed position to seek for speakers to share information on the variety of issues concerning the COVID-19 experience.”

In the opening lecture, the Chief Executive Officer of Lagoon Hospital, Dr. Olujimi Coker x-rayed the topic: “Telemedicine in the Post COVID Era”.

He gave insight into how telemedicine has assisted in the treatment of patients during this pandemic and how effective it is. He, however, gave the hurdles to achieving telehealth as poor network, data privacy/confidentiality and many other impediments giving ethical consideration and documentation.

He implored the audience to note that the back-end of telehealth management is as important as the front-end in order to create a seamless provision of care.

Dr Coker concluded his session by urging the government to adopt telemedicine after the pandemic as it will enhance healthcare and cushion the effect of the shortage of doctors.

Speaking during the second session, on the “Management of COVID 19: Insights from a UK Hospital”, a Consultant, Respiratory Physician, Northampton General Hospital, England, Dr. Imo Umoh explained the service design, patient flow, staffing and training, treatment pathways, follow-up and rehabilitation, using his hospital as case study.

The webinar ended with an appreciation from the Director of Clinical Services and Training, Dr Ibrahim Mustafa to the guest speakers and the audience for attending and participating actively.
