About this course

During an infectious disease pandemic, health care officials are often so concerned with treating the physical effects of the disease and limiting its spread that they often overlook the very real psychological impacts of a pandemic, such as fear, anxiety, and depression. This course is designed to provide medical professionals with greater insight into the mental health impact of pandemics among patients, health care providers, and the general public.

I appreciate the convenience of the course being online and accessible through my phone and that it directly reports to CEBroker to support mandated education requirements.

I really loved this information. I was hospitalized last year for almost a month and I noticed multiple medical errors (not being hooked up to my IV multiple times, given wrong medication which caused my sodium to be very low, etc.) which lengthened my stay. I can now define those exact errors and better understand what happened to me. I hate that these medical errors are so common and I appreciate how well laid out your breakdown and categorization of them was.
