Impact of COVID-19 and New Treatment Approaches

Originally presented on April 7, 2021 by Rachelle Richner, MSN, CRNP, NP-C and Julia Blanchette, PhD, RN, CDCES

This timely webinar will give an overview of what we know about the COVID-19 disease state, including pathophysiology and signs and symptoms. We'll profile high risk patient groups and how to address risk mitigation within these groups. And finally, we look at COVID-19 vaccines: what vaccines are currently available and what's coming; vaccine development and currently approved treatments; efficacy, dosing, and storage options for each vaccine; and a review of data from recent studies.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the basics of COVID-19 in a rapidly changing environment
  2. Discuss the national and international impact of COVID-19
  3. Explore patient groups at high-risk for COVID-19
  4. Discuss risk mitigation strategies for individuals
  5. Discuss new treatment methods, vaccine development, and guideline-recommended therapy

  2. Understand new treatment pathways based on CV risk assessment of people with type 2 diabetes
  3. Recognize the need to manage CV risk factors within the paradigm of the overall management of type 2 diabetes and associated macrovascular complications.
