The COVID-19 pandemic is dynamic. Our knowledge on the biology, epidemiology, public health, and clinical management changes daily. One of the additional challenges faced by healthcare providers is keeping up to date on the latest developments. Online resources can be very helpful, but there are a plethora of options to choose from.
We polled the members of the ERAS Cardiac Society to see which online resources they found helpful. Our only criteria were that the resources be available online, free of charge, and with no required membership. Below is the list of resources that they gave us.
Please note: this list is neither exhaustive nor exclusive. There are many excellent resources available, these just happen to be the ones most frequently used by our members.
