Crisis Standards of Care

UC Davis Health took a very unique approach to Crisis Standards of Care, perhaps the most difficult topic to plan for in any setting.

What is a hospital supposed to do when there are not enough resources to go around in a disaster? How do you have these conversations? Who should be involved?

The first answer: everyone. Consensus is key, and paramount. Please join us to learn how UCDH convened a group of physicians, bioethicists, communications specialists, and disaster planners to work through this incredibly arduous topic.
