ASN/HHS COVID-19 Scarce Resources Roundtable

The American Society of Nephrology (ASN) in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) hosted two 90-minute sessions with clinicians who were practicing in the acute in-hospital nephrology setting and experiencing a surge in COVID-19 outbreaks.

The roundtable sessions explored challenges, lessons learned, and sought to identify best practices in acute in-hospital nephrology settings experiencing an acute and or a prolonged surge in COVID-19 outbreaks. Numerous treatment and logistical areas were explored, lessons learned were discussed, and participants shared recommendations for the future as facilities continue to care for patients through this and future pandemics.
