I enjoyed going through the modules of this course. The information was broken up in an effective manner, so as to introduce someone with little, or maybe even no healthcare related experience to this topic. As the course progressed I realized that my own internal confidence regarding my patient management skills, diagnostic abilities, and procedural thinking was improving, backed by a thorough understanding of the basics of COVID-19 Training. With the information that I have received from this course, I will now be able to assist the healthcare system in future pandemic situations. Thank you for your time and consideration.

This is an excellent course for everyone, not only for healthcare workers but for family members as well. Gaining an understanding of the procedures and process of handling covid19 patients will help everyone to appreciate the tasks of both doctors and frontline workers. Highly recommended for all frontline healthcare workers handling covid19 all over the world. Highly recommended for politicians and policy makers so that they know how to allocate resources in their policy making. Very well written and layout. High credits goes to the doctors and course writers and presenters for this course.

Мне очень понравился курс, несмотря на то, что близко не мед. работник. Курс помог мне подготовиться к неизбежному периоду ухаживания за ковид-больным, дал понимание что происходит, что делать и прочее. Такие знания уменьшают страх, действуешь не вслепую, а максимально чётко, осознанно. Обратилась к этому курсу, когда запуталась в информации в интернете и от знакомых. Сложновато проходить тесты, когда дело касается специальных знаний, но освоить реально. Надо приложить усилия. Благодарю за этот курс и что он бесплатный. Вы очень помогаете людям!

Content audio video was very good. The practice questions and multiple attempts to improve the score was good. I had asked all my nursing students to complete this course. On completion of the course the students expressed that the course was very useful and provided with knowledge to care for COVID 19 patients . As the second wave is hitting India additional manpower is required to take care of patients .

This online course will bridge the gap theory practice among the nursing students. Thankyou. Looking forward for future courses

Excelente curso de mucha calidad, que en lo personal, me ha ayudado a entender mejor la difícil situación por la que estamos pasando, en verdad gracias por la oportunidad de dejármelo tomar completamente gratis, ojala mas gente se siga preparando para ayudar a lidiar con la pandemia que estamos viviendo. Este curso es para todas las edades, debemos estar preparados, porque creo en lo personal, que apenas estamos a la mitad del daño que realmente va a causar.

Very useful information on covid 19. Contains some basics and more advanced topics that were very interesting and helped me learn more.

I think this course is very helpful for anyone in healthcare during the current situation, and specially useful for staff that has been re deployed to support on covid wards and may usually work on different specialties and have limited contact with respiratory patients and/or acute areas.

The course provides basic and practical knowledge in several medical issues related to dealing with patient with COVID19. It works as a good primer for the subject. As for me, as a primary care physician who recently started working with COVID19 patient, it really helped me in getting a bigger picture of hospital care with which I wasn't familiar.

This is the best course about COVID-19 I have seen so far. It is simple enough but shows you step by step how to approach and manage a wide variety of patients. The videos were obviously scripted and the animations and slides used in the videos were very stylish, so I think the course had a very professional look.

As a healthcare professional, this course is very helpful and relevant. Most importantly, it is updated with the most recent and evidence-based updates and information about the COVID-19, not just in the United States, but also globally. Straightforward, with competitive quizzes, and actionable resources.

A very good overview of the management of COVID-19 patients for healthcare workers, regardless of experience and level of specialization. You may find yourself out of your depth in some subjects, but you will surely find very valuable information that will improve your clinical practice.
