“In Russia, as in many countries across the world, a significant proportion of healthcare resources has been directed toward the fight against COVID-19. In that context, it has been important to observe a balance between containing the coronavirus infection and providing patients who have acute or chronic health problems with urgent bespoke medical care in a comprehensive manner. Gradually restoring the provision of planned medical care is now more important than ever.”
Meeting participants will discuss issues such as the investment needed to make healthcare more accessible, the home care practices implemented in some regions, how remote prescribing will change the way patients obtain medicine, how telemedicine – which becomes essential in a pandemic – will change the shape of medical care provision in the future and which steps we need to take today to mitigate the potential negative effects of the pandemic for all citizens.
The event is supported by AstraZeneca.
