Turning the operating room green: how can we help to make it happen?
Join us for a roundtable discussion on sustainability in the OR and balancing patient and healthcare provider care with care for the environment.
Healthcare accounts for 4.4% of total carbon emissions in the developed world. If healthcare were a country, it would be the fifth largest carbon emitter globally.
As Covid-19 has pushed healthcare systems to the limit, how can sustainability endeavours endure in the face of exceptional challenges introduced by the pandemic?
The discussion will focus on:
- Balancing environmental commitments with other COVID-19 priorities
- Actions for making a sustainable difference
- Optimising patient and HCP care and safety while still caring for the environment
