Staying up-to-date on frequent medical emergencies

With the Covid 19 pandemic, the traditional medical consultation has been affected; a need has been generated to change the communication channels with the health system, significantly affecting Urgent Pathology Processes. We have experienced a situation in which traditional diagnostic circuits have been modified, generating changes in the most frequent type of pathology, with a decrease in trauma pathology, for example, and increasing chronic medical diseases and their acute decompensations.

Therefore, it is necessary to stay up-to-date on the most frequent processes of urgent health care. With this short course, you will be able to visualize in a global and pragmatic way the approach to urgent pathology.

It is a course from the perspective of the medical professional in consultation, based on their daily clinical experience and what they have experienced during the pandemic, so it is an eminently practical perspective of the most frequent urgent pathologies.
