Elsevier launches new vaccine and hospital resources on its COVID-19 Healthcare Hub -

Elsevier, a global leader in research publishing and information analytics, has announced the launch of complimentary resources and learning tools on its COVID-19 Healthcare Hub for frontline healthcare professionals who are playing an essential role during this pandemic.

The ICU Nurses Refresher Toolkit and COVID-19 Vaccine Toolkit contain up-to-date medical information on COVID-19, approved treatments and guidelines, and other useful tools to help doctors, nurses and staff provide care.

The ICU Nursing Refresher Toolkit features curated nursing skills from Elsevier as well as clinical eLearning and wellness resources from the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN). Utilizing evidence-based practices and data on the novel coronavirus, the Toolkit helps to enhance clinical reasoning skills for ICU nurses who are managing high volumes of patients with COVID-19, and for registered nurses being called from other units to assist with COVID-19 care in the ICU. Nurses can earn Continuing Education (CE) credits for successfully completing the four refresher courses on the site. This nursing toolkit follows the announcement that Elsevier was selected by the State of California Emergency Medical Services Authority (EMSA) to provide COVID-19 online training to nurses in the state.

As COVID-19 vaccinations continue to be developed and distributed globally, the COVID-19 Vaccine Toolkit provides healthcare workers with the latest, evidence-based information on vaccines approved for use. Visitors who access the Toolkit can read vaccine drug monographs and Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA) information, access vaccine administration resources, and view patient education materials, developed in collaboration with leading infectious disease experts. The toolkit will be continuously updated as additional vaccines receive approval from regulatory authorities and as new information on the vaccines is released.

Available in English, Spanish and Portuguese, the COVID-19 Healthcare Hub provides free access to toolkits, expert insights, research and COVID-19 guidelines. Since its launch in April 2020, the COVID-19 Healthcare Hub has received nearly 300,000 unique visits from physicians, nurses, clinicians, patients and researchers who are seeking the latest information and trustworthy resources on the pandemic.

Additional resources available on the COVID-19 Healthcare Hub include evidence-based clinical overviews, drug monographs, care plans, order sets and procedure videos for clinicians delivering care and information to patients. Healthcare professionals will also find the latest information and guidelines from government health agencies, medical societies and public health organizations for diagnosis, testing and treatment of patients with COVID-19.
