SALT LAKE CITY, March 22, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --A Osmosis, a health education platform empowering millions of clinicians and caregivers around the world through interactive tools and more than 1,500 educational videos, announced today the release of two free courses on COVID-19. This includes the first course designed to educate the general public, as well as one of the first courses available to healthcare professionals for continued medical education credit (CME credit). "The spread of the coronavirus continues to devastate the country a?? from school closures to mandatory stay-at-home orders a?? and the only way to overcome the virus is to flatten the curve and raise the line," said Shiv Gaglani, CEO of Osmosis, which he and co-founder Ryan Haynes created as medical students at Johns Hopkins. "The public must be educated on the virus and put specific measures into practice in order to slow down the spread, or 'flatten the curve,' but that's just the start." "Not only are we seeing our healthcare providers struggle to find proper medical supplies, but they're becoming overworked, infected, and a?? rightfully a?? concerned for their personal health," continued Gaglani. "If we don't take immediate action to increase our healthcare system's capacity to treat sick patients, or 'raise the line,' this could be the virus that breaks our already-fractured healthcare system."These courses teach participants to:
-Recognize the symptoms and diagnosis of COVID-19
-Identify how the novel coronavirus has spread around the world
-Apply into practice the public health measures we need to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19Upon completion of the course, participants will receive a certificate of completion, and healthcare professionals will earn 2.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)a??in partnership with Interstate Postgraduate Medical (IPMA).
