New Toolkit, CDC Webinar Address Anticipated "Tripledemic"

Five major medical societies have teamed up to create a toolkit for clinicians addressing public health concerns related to the “tripledemic” of COVID-19, flu, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) anticipated this winter. During a meeting with members of the White House COVID-19 Response Team on Oct. 17, 2022, leaders from health care associations across the country were asked to educate their members and stakeholders about the importance, effectiveness, and accessibility of the COVID-19 bivalent booster and the therapeutics available to treat those diagnosed with COVID-19. AMDA – The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine (AMDA) partnered with the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP), the Gerontological Advance Practice Nurses Association (GAPNA), the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP), and the American Academy of Physician Assistants/Associates (AAPA) to create this toolkit for clinicians working in post-acute and long term care settings, treating the most vulnerable of our population.

In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will be hosting a webinar on the threat posed by RSV, flu, COVID-19, and other respiratory illnesses this fall and winter on Tues., Nov. 29, 2022 from 2 to 3 p.m. ET. More information about the webinar, including registration information, is available here.
