August 14, 2020 – The American Lung Association and Cleveland Clinic are collaborating to disseminate free, comprehensive resources on COVID-19 care for healthcare providers globally. The organizations say that the resources will inform best practices to care for critically ill patients in a variety of clinical settings during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The robust inventory of online evidence-based modules and quick reference guides, developed by a multidisciplinary team of Cleveland Clinic experts, is hosted in Cleveland Clinic’s Respiratory and Education institutes’ Comprehensive COVID Care platform. The American Lung Association’s support of this comprehensive resource for healthcare providers is made possible through the organization’s $25M investment in the COVID-19 Action Initiative. These resources expand the organization’s existing science-based resources on COVID-19 for the public at Lung.org/covid-19.
This educational platform assists interprofessional and interdisciplinary teams to standardize practices in the care of patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. The web-based learning platform provides up-to-date, relevant and easy-to-access information germane to the position where a provider might be deployed.
All learning activities are independent education activities and carry CME certification by Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Continuing Medical Education. The Center is an ACCME-accredited provider with commendation status. The approximate credits proposed for these activities currently include 64 online modules, each earning between 0.5 to 2 AMA PRA Category 1 credits, based on the length of the activity.
