    AIA's most recent COVID whitepaper highlights clinicians' perspectives about what they need to care for patients and the care givers themselves. If you have had a chance to review it, has it been helpful in your practice?

    If you'd like learn more about the topic, some of the paper's authors are giving a live AIAU course on September 22. They'll explore adaptations to healthcare settings you can make to reduce the risk of transmission to care providers, staff, patients, and visitors.
