About this Course

During these challenging times, we’ve been working closely with our partners to develop new courses that share vital information about COVID-19 with learners from around the world. Most recently, Stanford University published COVID-19 Training for Healthcare Workers, a course offering a unified, evidence-based approach to addressing the novel coronavirus that will be free to learners through July 28, 2021. 

COVID-19 is rapidly spreading across the globe and all providers must be prepared to recognize, stabilize, and treat patients with novel coronavirus infection. Following the completion of this short course physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals will have a unified, evidenced-based approach to saving the lives of patients with COVID-19, including those who are critically ill.

Learning modules are broken into short videos presented in a richly illustrated and compelling manner. The course is self-paced and providers can schedule their learning to fit with their schedules. Topics include symptoms and signs in patients with COVID-19, early stabilization of patients, preventing the need for intubation, and ventilator management. The best evidence and guidelines are summarized while accompanying handouts provide written learning points and links to online resources. Simple infographics are available for providers to utilize within their care facilities to educate and promote optimal care across their entire institution.
