First, a thank you to all providers who have been called into action on the front lines of the COVID-19 response. Thank you.
Next, a quick update on our live courses and trainings.
Wound Care Education Partners is implementing a "COVID-19 Contingency Plan" for moving forward with hyperbaric medicine and wound care trainings.
Wound Care Education Partners has received UHMS and NBDHMT approval to hold all 4-days of the hyperbaric medicine basic training course and our wound care training course via live stream webinar format. Instruction will be the same as a face-to-face training, with the goal of reducing human-to-human physical contact and reducing travel as per government instructions.
This contingency plan and unique training opportunity, approved by the UHMS and the NBDHMT, is in effect only during the COVID-19 outbreak. The livestream webinar-based option is available for students who wish to/need to complete their training while "sheltering in place".
Licenses Eligible for CME/CEUs: MD, DO DPM (Florida only), RN, LPN, CNS, ARNP, CRT, RRT, RCP, CHT, CHRN
Physician Assistant (PA) CMEs: PA’s will receive a letter that states the educational activity was certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ and the hours earned; the letter can be submitted to your licensing board.
This course meets the CMS requirements for physician supervision and billing; and is a precursor to getting the UHMS PATH or ABWH certificate of added qualification.
UPDATE AS OF 30 June 2020: CHTs/CHRNs and students pursuing CHT or CHRN added qualification are also eligible to attend the livestream webinar course. CHTs, CHRNs seeking Category A continuing education credits/recertification through NBDHMT are eligible to take this livestream course, as the livestream format for Introduction to Hyperbaric Medicine is now approved by NBDHMT as of 30 June 2020.
