Covid-19 CONTENT and ONLINE TEACHING RESOURCES

About

To help you provide trustworthy resources to your patrons, we have created this reference web page containing links to all freely available Covid-19 content from the New England Journal of Medicine, NEJM Journal Watch, NEJM Resident 360, and NEJM Catalyst. In addition to access to original research and other relevant articles, you will also find links to education resources, NEJM multimedia, and teaching resources as well as online journal club discussions hosted every two weeks by NEJM Resident 360, a benefit of your institution subscription.

For educational institutions forced to shift from in-person to online courses, we encourage you to use our Covid-19 related materials and other NEJM Group content with your students. Our content is available for your educational purposes (but not commercial resale) as needed to support your students online during the Covid-19 pandemic. This includes the use of our articles and videos with your students through a computer or a course management system.

Please email us at institutionsales@nejm.org with questions regarding your site license features.

NEJM Group
Covid-19 Rx Treatment Simulations

This series of five treatment simulations range from a mild self-limited flu-like illness to life-threatening multi-organ failure. Designed to prepare clinicians on the frontlines of the pandemic, these interactive virtual patient encounters mimic the real-life unforgiving uncertainty of medicine. Each case has different underlying diseases and outcomes when replayed, providing the opportunity to experience a broad spectrum of Covid-19 disease presentations.

This approach helps the learner grasp the underlying pathobiology rather than the setting of the case. The cases are suitable for remote, individual or group learning and are designed for synchronous or asynchronous teaching of clinical reasoning.

In addition to the five treatment simulations, the series offers a Covid-19 interactive primer, which covers the basic concepts of managing mild patients who are suspected or confirmed of having Covid-19.

NEJM.org

The New England Journal of Medicine is committed to supporting the fight against Covid-19. As with all work we publish with immediate public health significance, articles about Covid-19 are freely available at NEJM.org from the day of publication. A special page has been created at NEJM.org for all coronavirus articles (www.nejm.org/coronavirus), along with links to essential resources for clinicians. In addition, we are also providing Covid-19 related articles from NEJM to PubMed Central and other public repositories, such as the WHO’s COVID database.

To assist Chinese health professionals in responding to the coronavirus outbreak, NEJM 医学前沿 “Yi Xue Qian Yan” professionally translates many of these articles into the Chinese language and makes them available at http://nejmqianyan.cn. Links to the translations are also on NEJM.org on the topic page for each article translated.

NEJM research articles related to the coronavirus will also be made freely available at CNKI (China National Knowledge Infrastructure). NEJM Group is participating in the proposal for Open Access Publishing of Research Papers on Novel Coronavirus-Infected Pneumonia via CNKI.

NEJM Videos in Clinical Medicine

As non-ICU clinical staff are being asked to care for critically ill patients in upcoming weeks, NEJM has a selection of Videos in Clinical Medicine to assist medical professionals during the pandemic. The videos will be freely available only for the duration of the outbreak on NEJM.org. Below is a complete list of relevant procedural training videos.

Share with your clinical staff a downloadable pdf of the selected videos here.

Educational Resources for
Remote Teaching and Learning

We continue to add interactive content and features to NEJM.org that improve learning and meet the needs of today’s physicians-in-training, wherever they are and on any device. Discover the educational features below that help hone diagnostic skills in the Learning and Multimedia sections.

For educational institutions forced to shift from in-person to online courses, we encourage you to use our Covid-19 related materials and other NEJM Group content with your students. Our content is available for your educational purposes (but not commercial resale) as needed to support your students online during the Covid-19 pandemic. This includes the use of our articles and videos with your students through a computer or a course management system.

VIDEOS IN CLINICAL MEDICINE demonstrate common clinical procedures. Viewable on NEJM.org, these videos are peer-reviewed for accuracy and chaptered for easy reference. They provide a concise review of the procedure, including preparation, equipment, and more. Check out our video, “Putting On and Removing Personal Protective Equipment”, which emphasizes the use of proper precautions for infection control.   

Weekly QUICK TAKE videos present highlights of important articles in an engaging, animated format. These brief videos offer a succinct, innovated way to understand important new research findings that have an impact on medical practice and patient care.

Twice each week, NEJM publishes images that are typically striking examples of a common clinical presentation along with accompanying text. IMAGES IN CLINICAL MEDICINE help physicians-in-training recognize common conditions and make more timely, accurate diagnoses.

The IMAGE CHALLENGE presents an acclaimed NEJM medical image and asks the viewer to make a diagnosis or answer a question. Submit answers for immediate feedback, and each Image Challenge includes links to supporting articles.

With INTERACTIVE MEDICAL CASES, users virtually manage actual peer-reviewed case-view videos, lab results, and brief commentary that explain important concepts.

The CASE CHALLENGE feature provides the case description from an upcoming Case Record of the MGH — but without the diagnosis. Users vote on the patient’s diagnosis and choose which diagnostic test(s) to order. The correct diagnosis and a full description of the case are published soon after.

CLINICAL PROBLEM-SOLVING follows top clinicians as they are presented with data in stages to simulate a clinical setting. They make recommendations and decisions based on the information provided and share their reasoning.

NEW Interactive Learning Resources Guide
In this new guide, you'll find curated, high-yield learning tools for residents and students in two formats, Interactive Medical Cases based on a real patient's experience with illness and Interactive Learning Elements that cover a specific topic. These resources are organized by level of complexity, from introductory to advanced topics.
