Since COVID-19 first appeared, healthcare professionals have responded to its threat by rapidly generating and disseminating new information gained from research and swiftly evolving how we treat patients at the bedside and how we tailor our public health responses. Our goal has been to provide the best possible care to the largest number of patients. And, in many ways, we can be commended for what we achieved. Yet, we made errors along the way. In this session, we aim to review lessons learned across the spectrum of research, clinical care, and public health so we do better next time.
CME credits and/or Certificates of Completion are not provided for this session.
