Summary

We hope this module prepared you to understand PPE practice, sanitation, triaging, mechanical ventilator function, ways to help out in clinical and non-clinical roles, and care for self and others during crisis. We recognize that this is an unsettling and stressful period of time for a duration that is uncertain. While it is important to stay informed about the pandemic, try to limit its spread, and help in ways that we can, it’s also of great importance not to disregard our own wellbeing. We hope our suggestions on how to manage anxiety and promote self-care during this pandemic are helpful.

For those of you who may soon be caring for COVID patients directly, we encourage you to try out this Virtual Patient Simulation.
