    About the Webinar

    COVID-19 is a novel disease with an incompletely described clinical course in healthy individuals — and especially in vulnerable populations. As front-line providers, NPs in primary and emergency care need the knowledge to treat and educate patients during this unprecedented global pandemic.

    This webinar will cover how to diagnose and treat patients with COVID-19 and ways to identify patients who are at risk for severe disease. The webinar also includes case studies that allow you to apply the knowledge to patient scenarios, as well as a live question-and-answer (Q&A) session at the end of the activity.

    The webinar recording will be available as an on-demand activity in the AANP CE Center until April 15, 2021.

    This live webinar is made available for NPs at no cost, thanks to an independent medical education grant from Novartis.
