Activity Description

The emergence of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and the associated disease, coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), has placed extraordinary pressures upon healthcare systems around the world. Healthcare professionals (HCPs) face the challenge of learning enough about COVID-19 to enable them to provide optimal care to patients and continuing to learn over time as new information and best practices evolve. This activity will improve the knowledge and competency of pharmacists and nurses about the stages of COVID-19 and the role disease progression plays in therapeutic options, the safety and efficacy data for monoclonal antibodies for use in COVID-19, and best practices for the use of monoclonal antibodies in patients with COVID-19.

Target Audience

The target audience for this activity is pharmacists, including specialty pharmacists and other pharmacists who care for patients with COVID-19, nurses across the continuum, pharmacy directors, chief pharmacy officers, health plan administrators, health-systems, group purchasing organizations, and other stakeholders in specialty pharmacy.

Learning Objectives

After completing the activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the stages of COVID-19, including early disease characterized by virus replication and later stages characterized by hyperinflammation and exaggerated immune response, and the role this plays in potential therapeutic options for COVID-19.
  • Evaluate outcomes from clinical trials evaluating the safety and efficacy of monoclonal antibodies for use in COVID-19.
  • Implement best practices in the use of monoclonal antibodies in patients with COVID-19 based on current evidence and guidelines.
