COVID-19 & Vitamin D Survey

Complete the survey here

A University of Manchester diabetes consultant has launched a global survey into prescribing patterns for vitamin D for COVID-19. 
National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance in December found no evidence to support vitamin D as a COVID-19 treatment. 
However, Professor Edward Jude says: "The COVID-19 pandemic has caused devastation across the globe and the virus seems to be spreading unabated. It has been demonstrated that countries that are most affected are the ones that are in colder climates mainly and it is thought that the population of these countries who are vitamin D deficient may be one of the reasons why the virus is spreading so rampantly."  

The anonymous survey is designed to understand prescribing patterns but also doctors' personal use of vitamin D. You can access and complete the survey here

Short and hands-on video tutorials: how you should adapt your daily hospital routine towards COVID-19

EWMA President Alberto Piaggesi has filmed together with his team at the Diabetic Foot Section of the Pisa University Hospital a series of video tutorials that could help healthcare professionals during COVID-19.

These short and hands-on videos tutorials are dedicated to different aspects of how you should adapt your daily hospital routine towards COVID-19. The video tutorials show, for example, how to make the appointment room ready for the patient, how to take care of your own safety during this pandemic and much more.

These videos could be, especially, helpful for healthcare professionals working at the diabetic foot clinics, however, they are also relevant to many other specialties during COVID-19 pandemic.

Thank you to Alberto Piaggesi and his team for taking the time to record the video tutorials.
