COVID-19 Pandemic | Module Overview

2020 witnessed the evolution of the first pandemic for generations and the most serious since the Flu pandemic of 1918. The novel coronavirus outbreak has exposed the vulnerabilities of a globally interconnected population with the menacing threat of a novel pathogenic virus. In the absence of treatments or vaccines, 21st century mankind has relied on stringent social isolation and hand-washing to combat the infection. Whilst the global spread of the virus has been swift, the response of science has been swift and, importantly, concerted. Since the original case on the 30th December 2019, scores of high-quality articles have been published, enabling the medical community to understand an illness that months previously we didn’t even recognise.

This CPD module consists of 10 'best of five' style questions and is designed to assess your current knowledge of the condition. Whilst the questions are based on current published knowledge, we recognise that this is a swiftly developing picture, so answers and current thinking may change. Similarly, ‘evidence’ is also emerging and many of the publications would, with application of levels of evidence, not be considered authoritative. With this in mind, we hope to continue to update these questions as knowledge progresses.
