Coronavirus: online training courses for hospital staff dedicated to the management of patients with severe respiratory impairment related to COVID-19
The AP-HP, Assistance Publique – Hôpitaux de Paris (Public Assistance – Paris Hospitals) turned to us to develop urgently with their teams and the Université Paris-Est Créteil (UPEC), online training courses for hospital staff dedicated to the management of patients with severe respiratory impairment related to SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).
In the current epidemiological context and in view of the large influx of patients with severe respiratory impairment related to CoV-2 SARS (COVID-19), there is a need for accelerated training tools for the management of respiratory failure in these patients in order to make a maximum number of healthcare professionals operational.
In this context, an online training course has been created, consisting of training courses dedicated to the management of patients with severe respiratory impairment related to SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).
Currently, five training courses are offered:
- ‘B.A-BA of ventilation’
- ‘COVID-19 in resuscitation’
- ‘COVID-19 patients: hygiene recommendations’
- ‘Training Medical Students’
- ‘COVID-19 and pregnancy’
The pedagogical content of this training will evolve according to the proposals of the expert/recommendation centres and may be subject to modifications/updates.
More than 20,000 healthcare professionals have already signed up to these courses.
If you know healthcare professionals around you, do not hesitate to share these online training courses rapidly and massively. It is available on computer and mobile, open to all of obviously free of charge.
We hope these modules will be helpful to all staff facing the pandemic: thank you for your work in these unprecedented times.
Some feedback we have received on the platform:
Theory is explained and questioned. Then knowledge is assessed by questions corrected in real time. A scenario is proposed allowing a visualization of the care and a better projection of the learner in the care situation. Bravo and thank you!
Pedagogical, ergonomic, clearly one of the best strategies to transmit good practices.
Courses are very well done, very clear and this is a great tool to learn, to reskill – especially in present circumstances where I ended up conducting ‘COVID rescuscitation’ after 21 years of surgery.
