Connect with your peers; join the Colorado Medical Society for an upcoming educational or social event.

Register today for Virtual Grand Rounds: Crisis Standards of Care coming up Monday, April 13, 6 - 7:30 p.m. This presentation is valid for 1 COPIC point. Participants can earn up to 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.

Expert speakers will discuss the revised Crisis Standards of Care for Colorado, including how physicians are protected from a liability perspective, what physicians can and can't do with PPE, and much more. There will be time for the speakers to address questions from participants.

As you already know, Colorado Crisis Standards of Care are guidelines for how the medical community should allocate scarce resources such as ventilators and intensive care unit beds in the extreme case when patient needs exceed the resources available. The Governor's Expert Emergency Epidemic Response Committee (GEEERC) approved the Crisis Standards of Care documents on April 5, 2020, and they were put into effect by an executive order from Gov. Jared Polis. The documents will be used to revise the full and final Crisis Standards of Care plan. Read more about the Colorado Crisis Standards of Care here.
