COVID Care

SARS-CoV-2 is a novel virus and COVID-19 is a new syndrome. Current concepts of “best care” seem to change daily. Milwaukee has the largest population in the state of Wisconsin and currently has the most cases of COVID-19 in the state.  Across our partner hospitals which include Children’s Wisconsin, the Zablocki VA Medical Center, and Froedtert Hospital, we aim to share best practices, resources, and knowledge to improve the care of all patients. There is a need to clarify the most up-to-date and best evidence-based medicine approaches. Further, redeployment of health care team workers to care for patients in different work units is being planned to address the expected surge of patients presenting for care. The purpose of this internet enduring educational intervention is to provide physicians and other healthcare professionals in the greater Milwaukee area with quick, up-to-date strategies and information regarding the diagnosis and management of COVID-19.
