Doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals around the world are facing countless challenges every day while they are fighting against the COVID-19.

This week we want to share some important information about some great FREE COVID-19 Training courses, webinars, and groups that can help you or someone you know in the healthcare industry that is part of the front-liners group.

Mechanical Ventilation for COVID-19

Given the increasing number of patients contracting COVID-19 and developing pneumonia, the medical system is, and will continue to be, in dire need of licensed medical professionals who can support the care for these patients.

Harvard University in partnership with the educational platform EDX (an open online course provider) is offering this free course for non-intensive care healthcare professionals to learn more mechanical ventilation.

 It will help these professionals better understand the basic concepts of mechanical ventilation and care for the patient receiving mechanical ventilation.

PRO TIP: Medical professionals who complete the course and pass a brief quiz can claim up to three continuing education credit hours.

Eligible learners can claim three AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ (physicians), nursing CEU credits, or a certificate of attendance for allied health professionals and other learners.
