Progress with the pandemic - Canada, Trinidad and Tobago, and United States

19th April 2021 


The Covid -19 pandemic has paralysed the running of Health Services across the world this past year. As a result, we have had to make swift decisions regarding prioritising treatments for patients with cancer, coronary heart disease and other urgent surgical conditions. Training has been severely jeopardised, and examinations postponed, conducted in a virtual platform or with strict social distancing without patient contact. The roll out of vaccines across the world has been variable and the messaging regarding the efficacy of these vaccines has been hard for the public to understand. The panel for this webinar from Canada, Trinidad and Tobago, and the United States will discuss the progress made under the circumstances in their respective countries.


Our panellists include:

  • Mr Pala Rajesh (Chair)
    Vice President, The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
