Healthcare systems are going through unprecedented upheaval in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic – straining under the volume of patients, and struggling with a lack of key resources.
On this course, you’ll explore the issues involved for nurses working with low resources, and what you can learn from nurses in crisis zones.
This course is designed for nurses or other healthcare professionals working with COVID-19 patients, or wanting to learn more about how to provide quality care with limited resources in times of crisis.
This is a St. George's University course. COVID-19 is having unprecedented effects on healthcare systems around the world. As a healthcare professional, it’s important to know how to respond safely and effectively.
On this course, led by experts at St George’s University of London, you’ll explore the epidemiology, clinical symptoms and signs, and current management of COVID-19 and follow the evolving situation in the UK.
This Harvard University course will help prepare licensed non-ICU hospital clinicians to support critical care respiratory therapists, physicians, and nurses in caring for a patient who is receiving mechanical ventilation. Given the increasing number of patients contracting COVID-19 and developing pneumonia, the medical system is, and will continue to be, in dire need of licensed medical professionals who can support the care for these patients.
“One of the essential qualities of the clinician is interest in humanity: the secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient” Francis W. Peabody, Harvard Medical School 1925
This 6-week course will teach you how to effectively care for critically ill patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.
You will learn the daily practice for frontline clinical staff supporting critical care patients with and without COVID-19, and how to apply ventilation and organ support principles to the care of a critically ill coronavirus patient.
Discover how to recognise, assess and manage deteriorating patients on the ward, and watch videos that demonstrate effective situation management in COVID-19 critical care.
Next, we’ll provide information on a number of checklists, resources and guidelines being produced specifically for COVID-19 in order to assist healthcare teams with their clinical management and decision making.
As the world struggles to contain the COVID-19 outbreak, healthcare infrastructure and testing capacity have emerged as major issues.
Different countries have implemented different testing strategies, and from the range of diagnostic tests available, some have received authorization for use by national regulatory agencies.
There’s a need for independent evaluation of these tests and guidance on implementing safe and reliable testing.
On this course, you’ll discover the latest recommendations on COVID-19 testing and get up-to-date information on the performance of tests and how best to deploy them.
This course is designed for professionals involved in the testing and diagnosis of COVID-19, with a focus on low- and middle-income settings.
This may include Ministry of Health officials, laboratory managers, laboratory technologists and technicians, clinicians, programme managers, implementing partners and others involved in laboratory testing for COVID-19.
As an expert in infectious diseases, editor of the Journal of Infectious Diseases and author of the textbook Infectious Diseases: A clinical short course, McGraw-Hill April 2020, I have been concerned about the misinformation being shared about the COVID-19 epidemic. How did this disease develop? Where did it come from? How does it cause diseases? The answers to these questions will be answered in the first video of module 1. The world has been startled and frightened by the rapid spread of this virus throughout the world. In Video 2 the epidemiology as presently understood is reviewed. This video will be periodically updated recognizing the rapid progression of the pandemic. Many want to know how does this disease present, what are the symptoms associated with COVID-19? How dangerous is COVID-19? Who is at risk of dying? All these questions are answered in Video 3. And finally how is this disease best treated and how can we slow the spread of the infection? These questions are answered in video 4. In addition to the videos multiple choice questions are included to test your understanding and there is an epidemiology peer reviewed exercise designed to teach you how this infection is spread and to show the power of the tracing of cases and isolating those who are infected.
CARE is a centralized capacity management and patient management system which is a conglomerate of Patients, doctors, hospitals, labs, specialized treatment centres, hospital administrators, shifting control cells etc. Each hospital would have to login and update the information regarding their Assets including bed capacity, health care personnels, current patient count, status etc so that it would be easy for the district administration to get a birds eye view of the entire healthcare system as well as the patients through the smart and intuitive dashboards.
