AIIMS, MoH&FW and NITI Aayog to start best practices sessions for doctors across India on COVID-19 management
The Clinical Grandrounds on COVID-19 will include the presentation of clinical cases by physicians directly involved in their management
The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi in collaboration with Union Health Ministry and NITI Aayog is ready to start a national programme called ‘National Clinical Grandrounds on COVID-19’ from today, according to an official statement.
The Clinical Grandrounds on COVID-19 will include the presentation of clinical cases by physicians directly involved in their management. Challenges faced in the management will be discussed by a panel of eminent experts from across the country and outside India.
Each case discussion will be followed by a short presentation on clinically relevant topics in managing COVID-19.
Each CGR will also include a question and answer session where physicians, who log-in to view the session, can ask patient management related questions to the panel of experts.
The first CGR 19 will focus on managing patients with SARI who are clinically suspected to have COVID-19 but test negative on the initial RT-PCR.
Discussions will be led by Prof Randeep Guleria, Director, AIIMS New Delhi. “This is learning exercise for all. Doctors from any part of the country can join us. We will discuss the classical issues related to COVID-19 management, type of testing, tracking, usage of drugs, and treatment,” Dr Randeep Guleria told ANI.
“As coronavirus is a multi-system disease which affects other organs also, we will discuss its treatment protocol in detail. We will take the feedback from doctors on issues they want to learn. Gradually, doctors from other states can also share their best practices in the treatment of a COVID-19 patient,” Dr Guleria added.
Live CGR can be accessed on July 22( at 3 PM at https://covid.aiims.edu/cgr/ and on the AIIMS Telemedicine YouTube channel.
