Perioperative Provider Safety During COVID-19 : A Global Survey
A global survey of surgical providers in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) – which covered 230 hospitals and 539 perioperative providers across 63 countries – found a severe shortage in resources, training, and protocols to reduce the risk of infection from COVID-19.The findings of the survey have been summarized in the "Perioperative COVID-19 Report : Resources & Safety" alongside recommendations to improve the safety of our surgical colleagues working on the frontlines of the pandemic.
