Details

COVID-19 is rapidly spreading across the globe and all providers must be prepared to recognize, stabilize, and treat patients with novel coronavirus infection. This rapid-fire, self-paced course focuses on the critical information required to care for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. Following completion of this short course physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals will have a unified, evidenced-based approach to saving the lives of patients with COVID-19.

About this course

Learning modules are broken into short (<10 minute) videos presented in straightforward language. This allows providers to learn at their own pace and time. Topics include symptoms and signs in patients with COVID-19, early stabilization of patients, prevention of the need for intubation, and ventilator management of patients. The best evidence and guidelines are summarized while accompanying handouts provide written learning points and links to online references. Additionally, simple infographics are available for providers to utilize within their care facilities to educate and promote optimal care across their entire institution.
