As a result of this CME session, participants should be better able to:

1) Recognize that convalescent plasma therapy has been used for various novel diseases, including COVID19, but a standardized protocol for qualification and protocols remains unknown.
2) Recognize that convalescent plasma therapy was tested on top of standard therapy, which was not protocolized.
3) Recognize various patient groups were excluded in the trial (pregnant, Ig allergy, IgA deficiency, comorbidity increasing risk of thrombosis, life expectancy < 24 hrs, DIC, severe septic shock, P/F less than 100, severe CHF, high antibody titer, participation in other antiviral trial within 30 days prior, or other contraindications per attending).


1) Utilize clinical practice guidelines of various acute and chronic diseases.
2) Provide evidenced based medical care and decrease variance in practice.
3) Consider culture, health literacy and language in caring for patients and provide resources to address concerns.


Nelson Chiang and the planners of this activity have disclosed that they have no financial relationships with a commercial interest that constitute a relevant financial relationship.  

A commercial interest is any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. The ACCME does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests - unless the provider of clinical service is owned, or controlled by, an ACCME-defined commercial interest.


CME credit will be granted to participants who attend the conference and complete the evaluation survey.
