What can forensic medicine teach us for the management of pandemics?

1st to 2nd March 2023, Online Education Course.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown how difficult the management of new or re-emerging infections can be. The current course will cover lessons learned in forensic medicine that can help to improve their management in elderly and vulnerable patients. This course will use translational medicine to show how pathophysiology and autopsy studies can help clinicians in the preparedness for new and reemerging infections or even future pandemics.
