Managing Emerging Infectious Diseases: Should Travel Be the Fifth Vital Sign?
ANA COVID19 Webinar Series
PANDEMIC: Prevention and Emergency Management in COVID-19
The International Society of Travel Medicine's Professional Education Committee (PEC) has put together an online PANDEMIC course of curated journal articles designed to help busy clinicians learn more about COVID-19. It is FREE and available to non-members. Go to: www.istm.org to register.
PANDEMIC Course Topics include:
- Clinical Course
- Severe Disease
- Therapeutics, and
- Personal Protection for Health Care Workers
The PEC recognizes that health care providers are busy caring for patients, leaving little time to search the medical literature for relevant journal articles. The digital format is presented as easily digestible curated journal articles, with summaries and educational quizzes. Providers who want or need to learn more about COVID-19 can conveniently access the course on personal mobile devices during a short break or as time allows to sit down and work through a module.
We recognize the pandemic is moving fast and so is the medical literature. For that reason, we will update the content regularly.

A day does not go by that we are not learning of new knowledge about COVID19. ATHNA has developed this dedicated space on our website to help our members navigate the huge volume of resources and information that is being generated. This pandemic is having a huge impact on all of our lives, and the amount of new knowledge can be overwhelming. Julie Richards has initiated this page with a few reliable, fact based resources. As more information becomes available we will update this page weekly. And if you know of a particular valuable resource you would like to share with other travel health nurses, please send the link to email@example.com.
