Managing Severe COVID-19 in the Hospital Setting: An Interprofessional Approach

Program Overview

“I was dying … and I was dying alone,” says Nancy, recalling her lonely isolation in the intensive care unit as one of the earlier victims of COVID-19 in her region. This dynamic panel features an interprofessional lineup of experts who will debate and discuss data, guidelines, and literature on the treatment of severe COVID-19 in the hospital setting and what it all means for your practice and patients. Additionally, they are joined by Nancy who survived the earliest days of COVID-19 in the United States and will share her learning moments with the panel and learners.
