    The rapid spread of COVID-19 has led to unprecedented disruption around the world, including the healthcare industry. The only expected piece is that change will occur at a fast pace with huge impacts across the broad spectrum of healthcare and everyday life. The scale of COVID-19 impact has caused changes to all of our everyday personal and workplace lives.

    We can get wrapped up in the chaos if we do not properly prepare, plan and manage to the new infectious disease world. We are going to get through this pandemic. Humanity has proven over and over again that the human body is resilient and adaptive to challenges.

    Humans have been battling viruses with our natural immunity defenses since we have been on earth. For most viral pathogens our body deals with the infection and we may not even know we were infected. All these virus busting mechanisms have allowed us to keep infections from spreading widely, and have helped sick people recover. For one disease — smallpox — we've been able to eradicate it, ridding the world of new cases.

    The plethora of information about COVID-19 is sometimes helpful, sometimes wrong and occasionally damaging. How do we sort all this information out? One way to clear the fog is through an effective training program. Evidence guided education can be an important asset to planning, preparing and preventing infectious disease in ambulatory healthcare settings.

    In this course we will address an evidence guided approach to engaging staff in increased awareness about COVID-19. We will talk about key elements of a COVID-19 training in response to the many questions we face to create a safe working environment.

    This course is intended for the healthcare provide team (HCP). HCP include, but are not limited to, clinical support personnel, chiropractic assistants, nurses, chiropractic physicians, technicians, therapists, students, trainees, contractual staff not employed by the healthcare facility, and persons not directly involved in patient care, but who could be exposed to infectious agents that can be transmitted in the healthcare setting (e.g., clerical, laundry, security, engineering and facilities management, administrative, billing, and volunteer personnel).

    Online Chiropractic Continuing Education is the Pathway to the Future

    Online chiropractic continuing education (CE) was already a popular channel for staying current with required credits before the pandemic. With the global forcing stay-at-home orders, life online has surged dramatically. online chiropractic CE courses gained further popularity and exposure, and it just made sense.

    Chiropractic continuing education seminars, which were traditionally held at physical locations to include networking and recreational activities, are now also held online. There are certain perks to online chiropractic continuing education programs, including the safety and comfort of classes taken at home or in the office, and reduction of travel expenses.

    Maintaining Continuing Education Credit Requirements

    The Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards (FCLB) has been working to ensure that all chiropractors would have access to online chiropractic continuing education programs. To address the current challenges, the FCLB encouraged member state boards to utilize the Providers of Approved Continuing Education (PACE) program to promote more online continuing education credit completion, versus in-person classes and seminars. Each state board dictates the level of distance learning they will allow, with some requiring a greater number of in-person education hours. In an effort to accommodate practitioner safety during COVID-19, several states who previously did not accept many hours of online chiropractic continuing education moved to allow emergency acceptance of online relicensure CE.. PACE Recognized Providers were also quick to provide chiropractic continuing education courses that were specific to COVID-19.

    Online Chiropractic CE Courses: Flexibility and Convenience

    With online chiropractic continuing education courses, attendees can participate in the comfort of their own home or office, which at this time is a safer learning environment. The primary benefits of online chiropractic continuing education programs are quality and convenience. PACE continuing education courses are cataloged and audited by regulatory review experts for their relevance and accuracy.

    PACE catalogs chiropractic continuing education courses by date, topic, geographic region, and specific instructor. Overall, online chiropractic continuing education courses provide the chiropractic profession with improved continuing education credit offerings, presentation of current topics, increased quality assurance, and credibility.

    In Conclusion

    Online chiropractic continuing education courses and seminars are becoming the leading choice for ongoing education. Online programs offer flexible scheduling, lower costs, more comfortable learning environments, and increased knowledge.
