Obesity and COVID-19 in the Outpatient Setting: What Clinicians Need to Know

This activity, “Obesity and COVID-19 in the Outpatient Setting: What Clinicians Need to Know,” will provide information that clinicians require to appropriately advise patients with obesity on how to avoid infection, monitor their patients with obesity who develop COVID-19, and recognize and manage complications as they occur to minimize morbidity and mortality. Some topics covered: 

  • Understanding the Pathophysiology of COVID-19 
  • Factors that Increase the Risks of COVID-19 for Patients with Obesity 
  • Developing Strategies to Manage Patients with Obesity during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Lung Cancer and COVID-19 in the Outpatient Setting: What Clinicians Need to Know

Patients with underlying health conditions such as lung cancer are at greater risk for infection or complications from COVID-19. Because of this increased risk, it is important that these patients are carefully managed, with telemedicine replacing in-person visits where possible. However, monitoring patients via telemedicine requires special attention, particularly because symptoms of COVID-19 infection are similar to common adverse events associated with lung cancer treatment.

This activity, “Lung Cancer and COVID-19 in the Outpatient Setting: What Clinicians Need to Know” will provide clinicians with the most up-to-date guidance on managing lung cancer during the current pandemic, including information on the pathophysiology of Sars-Cov-2, the risk of infection in patients with lung cancer, and strategies to manage patient care and counsel through telemedicine. Some topics covered:

  • The Pathophysiology of COVID-19
  • Patient and Disease Features that Increase Risk of COVID-19 Infection and Complications in Patients with Lung Cancer
  • Recommendations for Managing Patients with Lung Cancer in the COVID-19 Pandemic

Telemedicine Liability Considerations

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the sudden adoption of telemedicine by many practices and systems, accompanied by government and payer emergency measures that make providing virtual care easier. Given this rapid growth, it’s important to look at potential risks associated with telemedicine.
