Covid-19 Education and Resources

Post #1

Post by hchinnis »

Hi everyone, I am a registered nurse in an ambulatory surgery center that is currently shut down. I have been looking to bring myself up to speed on the Coronavirus, management plans, safety for medical personnel etc., and I’ve come across some free courses aimed at medical professionals-

COVID-19: Tackling the Novel Coronavirus

Managing COVID-19 in General Practice
https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/man ... l-practice

I am wondering if anyone has done these or similar courses? Has your workplace provided you with recommendations on relevant courses to do? Are you aware of any central resource that lists courses for medical personnel? What is everyone doing training wise? Thank you for your time!

Let me help you:

"Official names have been announced for the virus responsible for COVID-19 (previously known as “2019 novel coronavirus�) and the disease it causes. The official names are:

Disease

coronavirus disease
(COVID-19)

Virus

severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2
(SARS-CoV-2)"

Source: WHO, https://www.who.int/emergencies/disease ... -causes-it.

I'm cool! :) - Stronger Religion every day! Also by "mathematical Religion", the eternal forms, God closing the door on corrupt humanity, possibly!

How was that helpful? Some pointless rambling in response to a valid question.
