Coda Cure

This first episode of Coda Cure has set the scene. The importance of clear definitions, treatment strategies, managing Antimicrobial Resistance, vaccination programs and dealing with the long term outcomes of sepsis were all identified. The Cure pillar remains in the early stages of identifying areas for our community to take meaningful action on global sepsis.

Coda Ethics

Inequity within the healthcare profession harms both providers and patients. Diverse teams have been shown to offer better care and improved productivity. The Coda community has the goal of developing achievable, sustainable and measurable actions (within the Ethics pillar) to tackle inequity within healthcare and disseminating these in 2022.

In order to take action we need to develop plans through a five-stage process:

  • Stage one: Identify; this is where the Ethics domain is currently, and seeks to identify potential actions
  • Stage Two: Review (expert); potential actions are examined by a global team of experts for the feasibility of application.
  • Stage three: Review (community); expert recommendations return to the community where they are proposed for modification and acceptance.
  • Stage four: Sharing; once accepted these expert designed but community modified actions begin the process of sharing or implementation.
  • Stage five: Measure; outcomes from implementing the actions are measured and assessed.

Coda.Zero provides the perfect platform for the early stages of developing our action plans. In this episode we explore what does gender inequity and racism look like within healthcare today. The pandemic has exposed and exacerbated many inequalities. What are the challenges? In the final conversation the panel proposes some powerful advice for our community action:

  • Speak up / don’t be a bystander: Become an activist
  • Human rights start at home: Educate our children
  • Read literature from authors with diverse experiences / cultures: We need insights into these lived experiences
  • Have tough conversations – discussions not debates

We have brought together a dynamic and diverse group of opinion leaders to launch this topic. Each conversation is both informative and highly engaging. Welcome to Coda.Zero
