The California Health and Human Services Agency (CHHS) and the California Medical Association (CMA), in partnership with the California Academy of Physician Assistants (CAPA) and Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons of California (OPSC), are hosting a monthly Virtual Grand Rounds series on the evolution of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and management of COVID-19 patients.
The third in our monthly Virtual Grand Rounds series – Transmission, Testing and Masks: creating a culture to curb COVID-19 – will be Tuesday, September 8, 2020, at 12 p.m. Participants will learn how to:
- Discuss and disseminate information on the importance of masking to patients and communities
- Utilize behavior change strategies to encourage patients' adoption of best practices for face coverings
- Choose the appropriate tests for patients and interpret test results based on the current state of COVID-19.
- Make test recommendations based on test shortage issues and state testing priorities
- Recommend protective equipment to use in clinical settings and community settings
The 90-minute grand rounds webinars are free and open to all interested clinicians. Participants can receive 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Clinicians likely to encounter COVID-19 in their practice settings (e.g., front line physicians, nurse practitioners or physician assistants) are encouraged to join the monthly case-based presentations, which will include expert panel discussions and audience participation.
If you are unable to attend the live webinar, they will be available for on-demand playback at covidroundsca.org.
