SARS-CoV-2 was first identified in 7 patients in Wuhan, China. All the patients had a direct connection with a Wholesale Seafood Market that also sold more than 75 types of live animals. The patients presented with a progressive lower respiratory infection that quickly acquired the name Coronavirus Disease 2019, commonly known now as COVID-19. On January 30, 2020 the World Health Organization (WHO) declared a Public Health Emergency and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services followed a day later. In March 2020, the WHO declared pandemic status for COVID-19.
Since the virus’ arrival in December 2019, the availability of information has mirrored the rise in number of people infected with the virus. There is no lack of information being distributed and there is a lot of misinformation. Credible organizations like the WHO, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Oxford University, and the Johns Hopkins University, are all competing with Facebook, Twitter, commercial news media, and political organizations that distribute their own versions of the facts.
Dental professionals man the front line of healthcare. They are in direct contact with patients on a daily basis. This course is designed to offer standardized knowledge from the most credible organizations including: WHO, CDC, Oxford University, Johns Hopkins, and others. Its goal is to inform and then assist dental professionals to make decisions that keep their patients, staff, and themselves healthy. The best and most effective decisions come from a team working together, with a consistent knowledge base. References, including original research, are included in the course.
Periodic newsletters and course updates will be distributed to all students as they become available.
The course is brought to you using a “virtual classroom” that can be accessed 24/7/365 on any device connected to the Internet using any network. Once enrolled, it will never leave your account and will be updated as needed. Johns Hopkins CME certificates can be downloaded directly from the site upon completion of the course.
