COVID-19 is a virus identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China in 2019 and has since spread globally into a pandemic. Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. While roughly 80% of cases report mild symptoms, some progress into severe pneumonia and multi-organ failure and can led to death. Current data indicates the risk of death for those contracting COVID-19 notably increases for individuals above the age of 60 or for individuals with autoimmune conditions. On January 11, 2020, the first set of individuals in the United States tested positive for COVID-19. The virus has since spread across all 50 states and the number of individuals testing positive for COVID-19 continues to rapidly grow each day. It is important to know how the University of Oklahoma plans to provide a safe and healthy environment to deal with this pandemic so that students may still attend school. It is the intent of the OSMA CME Planning Committee to keep all physicians and healthcare providers updated on all issues regarding COVID-19.
The educational design addresses the needs and issues of healthcare providers including physicians, nurses, physician assistants, healthcare administrators, and office practice managers.
