JVS produces collection on COVID-19, vascular care
BY BETH BALES
The Journal of Vascular Surgery (JVS) has introduced the COVID-19 Collection, a compilation of fast-tracked articles designed to proactively provide solutions to deliver the best care in the current COVID-19 environment. JVS has dramatically shifted communication with vascular surgeons and vascular specialists to determine ways to prevent spread of the infection, improve treatment of infected patients with co-existing vascular disease, and save the lives of both patients and healthcare professionals. The JVS COVID-19 Collection is free to access and available at vsweb.org/COVIDCollection.
“The JVS welcomes reports on personal and institutional experiences on how to improve vascular disease management while protecting our patients and the vascular care-givers during this crisis,” said Peter Gloviczki, MD, editor-in-chief of the JVS publications.
“The series of articles is designed to collectively share best practices and communication among vascular health experts for delivering the highest quality care.”
Topics in the growing collection of informative articles include telemedicine, practice changes and the impact of treating patients with vascular health conditions and COVID-19 in areas across the world.
More than 35 articles have been fast-tracked and published to date, including “Delivering high-quality vascular care via telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic,” a discussion of the sweeping changes to the delivery of healthcare throughout the U.S. and other parts of the world.
