About the Webinar
The World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the COVID-19 outbreak a public health emergency (pandemic) on 11th March 2020. Since then, countries have taken strict measures to restrict movements. While there are huge efforts being made across the world and in Asia in particular, to respond and contain COVID-19, wider economic and social consequences such as patient safety, the displacement of people, disruption of supply chains and restrictions to the movement of goods and services are leaving a long trail of implications for organisations to manage.
Essential to this is the role of accreditation providers to empower healthcare facilities and services to brace the challenges and shortcomings by enabling business continuity with emphasis on quality and safety.
