The Forum organizations are pulling together cross-disciplinary work groups that are prioritizing issues, convening subject matter experts, sharing information, developing best practices and working together with other community partners.
The consensus recommendations, Q&A materials and references have been generated and gathered by the Washington Healthcare Forum COVID-19 Work Group. They are provided to all healthcare organizations and government agencies working to control the COVID-19 outbreak in Washington state.
