LifeLearn Animal Health Announces Free CE Course “COVID-19: What we know and don’t know with Dr. Scott Weese” - Available Now on VetFolio

LifeLearn Animal Health, in partnership with the North American Veterinary Community (NAVC) and VetFolio, today announced the launch of the veterinary CE course COVID-19: What we know and don’t know with Dr. Scott Weese, available today and free indefinitely for VetFolio subscribers.

“When it comes to COVID-19, it’s important for practices and pet owners to get the facts,” says Dr. Mark Stephenson, LifeLearn’s Chief Veterinary Officer. “Sorting out what we know and don’t know with infectious disease expert Dr. Scott Weese can help practices focus on delivering the best medicine to patients while keeping clients and team members healthy and safe.”

Offering veterinarians, veterinary technicians and anyone working in the animal health profession insights and clarification on COVID-19 as it affects animals, the course includes expert recommendations on COVID-19 risks to a clinic, pet quarantine information, social distancing practices applied in a clinic setting and more.

COVID-19: What we know and don’t know with Dr. Scott Weese has been submitted to AAVSB and is awaiting RACE approval.

“Resources and information are vital right now for all practices to safely and effectively manage their way through the COVID-19 crisis,” says Dr. Stephenson. “Free accessibility means this important course is available to all practice team members. And online veterinary courses give veterinary professionals and students the flexibility and accessibility to learn and grow how they want, when they want, while practicing safe physical distancing.”

LifeLearn’s production of the free VetFolio CE course by Dr. Weese is the company’s latest response to COVID-19 and serving the needs of practices.

“From the start of the outbreak,” says Dr. Stephenson, “LifeLearn understood that with so much information and misinformation available, it was crucial to focus on what disease experts knew and stick to the facts. LifeLearn also appreciated how time was valuable in practices and how answering questions about COVID-19 may be overwhelming for teams as they took care of day-to-day business. To help, we launched a dedicated COVID-19 Practice Resources page on the LifeLearn website to provide practices with a complete range of free tools, resources and information.”

LifeLearn’s COVID-19 Practice Resources page includes two free resources provided by Dr. Scott Weese:

  • Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Owner Contact Guidelines for Veterinarians, a flowchart for managing contacts and case admissions to clinics.
  • COVID-19 in Animals: The Facts from an Infectious Disease Expert (Podcast): In cooperation with LifeLearn, VetFolio’s Dr. Cassi interviews veterinary infectious disease expert Dr. Scott Weese about COVID-19 in animals. (To receive CE credit for the podcast, access the quiz from the link provided on the VetFolio podcast page.)

“Staying connected and sharing resources is how we get through crises,” adds Dr. Stephenson, “and we encourage practices everywhere to download, use and share our resources to help them get through these challenging times.”

LifeLearn also assures its customers that, while some industries have been affected by COVID-19, LifeLearn’s products, services, support, operations and resources are not affected by the outbreak. Their products and services will continue to operate reliably, with little likelihood of significant impact, and LifeLearn is focused on being available to all customers.
