COVID Rx: Quick Updates



Activity Overview
This online continuing education series will explore current developments regarding COVID-19 and examine the impact on patient care.  Each module will look at a new hot topic and identify the key take away points about the latest data, helping pharmacists to translate the information into practice.  The modules are delivered in 30 minutes or less and they may be completed individually/out of order to allow easier access for busy healthcare professionals.  This series will support pharmacists and other healthcare professionals to navigate through COVID-19 by improving their understanding of the rapidly evolving data and how it applies to practice.  Please note:  although this information is useful to all healthcare practitioners, currently it is only accredited for pharmacy CE credit.
