Activity Description / Statement of Need:

In this online, self-learning activity:

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has upended life as humankind knows it, leading to over 668 million cases and more than 6.7 million deaths worldwide at the time of this writing. SARS-CoV-2 invades the nasal epithelium and lungs, leading to a variety of clinical presentations and outcomes during the acute infectious process, including asymptomatic disease; milder symptoms such as fever, cough, abdominal pain, anosmia, and ageusia; and, in severe cases, hypoxemia, acute respiratory stress disease, and death. Complications are not limited to the respiratory tract and may present as multi-organ involvement varying from acute cardiac injury, coagulopathies, and multisystem inflammatory syndrome. Some survivors of the disease must also grapple with post-COVID conditions (or “long COVID”), which can include a constellation of manifestations, such as fatigue and impaired cognitive function, and impair patient quality of life.

Target Audience:

HCPs including: hospitalists and other primary care physicians, infectious disease physicians, pulmonologists, and critical care physicians; physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists in those areas of specialty; and any other healthcare professionals with an interest in or who clinically encounter patients with acute COVID-19 infection.
