COVID-19 Resources

SPAQI PERIOPERATIVE COVID-19 Resources List

The current COVID-19 Pandemic has required extensive multidisciplinary involvement. The safe and appropriate care of patients with COVID-19 readily applies to the perioperative space as well as to the multiple other clinical roles perioperative clinicians may practice. Here, we aim to collate the most up-to-date, high yield, evidence based multidisciplinary resources from professional societies and other online sources. We aim to subdivide by both type of source as well as available content, so some links may be catalogued more than once:
