As with any disaster, the COVID-19 pandemic is leaving in its wake a broad range of impacts on the health of our community, and on our health and social services infrastructure. To take on the incredible challenge of long-term recovery, we must understand the scope of unmet needs, generate cross-discipline solutions, and keep our focus on improving organizational and community resilience.
In this first session of our “Series on Unmet Needs”, we will look at the impact of COVID-19 on our overall healthcare system. We will ask:
- What are the possible long-range predictions of community health needs?
- What capacity issues are we already seeing, and what vital services are impacted?
- How can we meet current and future health needs of our clients and patients?
