Covid 19 Response: Cathleen Moran. Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Acute Medicine, AMU University Hospital Galway.

In response to COVID 19 the AMU in UHG has become “the new medical ED“ for the non Covid medical stream. Initially in preparation for this, the Advanced Nurse Practitioners in AMU, UHG, together with ICAPSS, facilitated clinical simulation training for AMU staff. The ANPs have also changed practice to work across 7 days to support the AMU team. Along with the assessment, treatment and diagnosis of acute ambulatory care patients presenting to AMU, the ANPs have developed virtual clinics to provide an outreach to patients and reduce physical presentations to AMU.
