Rapid Update: Therapeutic Management of COVID-19

Thu, January 20, 2022
Zoom Webinar

Hosted by Ontario Health

The General Medicine Quality Improvement Network (GeMQIN) brings general medicine physicians and care teams together to learn new ways to improve their patient care and to reduce variations in care.  
As we continue to see unprecedented numbers of COVID-19 cases across the province we will discuss recent developments in treatment of COVID-19 in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. We will include a discussion of availability and access to these therapeutics across the province.


Please join us on Thursday, January 20, at 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (EST) for a GeMQIN Community of Practice webinar.  
Dr. Menaka Pai will present the most up-to-date science on therapeutics for COVID-19, based on the work of the Drugs and Biologics Clinical Practice Guidelines Working Group of the Ontario COVID-19 Science Advisory Table.  Dr. Chris Simpson will also provide a brief update from Ontario Health.
