The Use of Monoclonal Antibodies Against COVID-19
The world is currently plagued by a pandemic that has affected more than one billion people and killed two million. Many believe that vaccines are the best hope for eventually eradicating this horrific disease but there are obstacles to achieving this goal in the very near future and there will be those for whom a vaccine is not the answer. Effective treatments are desperately needed in the short to midterm to prevent serious complications and death from the disease. Monoclonal antibodies are currently available to help meet that need but too few people, both health care professionals and the general public, know about this therapy. This course has been designed to provide the conceptual and operational knowledge to both promote this intervention and to educate the healthcare professional how to administer these medications safely and effectively. They are administered intravenously and State Boards of Nursing have varying positions on the role of the LPN/LVN in the administration of infusion therapy. Competency requirements are obtained and maintained through the nurse’s employer, facility or institution, skill checklists are provided for this within the course.
