SARS-CoV-2 was first identified in 7 patients in Wuhan, China. The patients presented with a progressive lower respiratory infection that quickly acquired the name Coronavirus Disease 2019, commonly known now as COVID 19. On January 30, 2020 the WHO declared a Public Health Emergency with the U.S. HHS following a day later. A month later the WHO declared pandemic status for COVID – 19.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is the cornerstone of infection control in all healthcare settings. Its proper deployment and use is essential in protecting providers and patients. This course is designed to test your knowledge and skills using a state of the art clinical activity simulator. Students will have an opportunity to refresh their knowledge of COVID 19 as an infective agent and then employ that knowledge in a state of the art virtual clinical simulator. Your competency and confidence in your ability to protect patients, colleagues, yourself, and your family will improve.
