Assessment of Needs
With the ongoing demands of responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, clinicians and other frontline health care professionals are particularly vulnerable to burnout, stress, and other negative mental health effects. In this panel webinar, the IAS–USA Board of Directors will share personal stories of their experiences from early on during the pandemic to now, including how they have been dealing with the surge of COVID-19 cases and coping with stress. The panel will be moderated by Nadine J. Kaslow, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Emory University.
On completion of this webinar, learners will be able to:
- Describe approaches that thought leaders in the field have used to manage stress and maintain mental and overall health and use those strategies to keep up their own health and the health of staff and colleagues
- Describe the magnitude of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects upon everyone in the health care system

Conflicts of Interest
In the interest of maintaining the independence of its continuing medical education (CME) activities, the International Antiviral Society–USA (IAS–USA) requires all persons with control of educational content (eg, faculty, Scientific Leadership Board, Governance Board, and program planner) to disclose any financial relationships with ineligible companies (previously defined as “commercial interests”) that they have had within the past 24 months. Any real or apparent conflicts of interest of those parties are resolved and mitigated prior to the CME activity being delivered. Individuals who refuse to disclose financial interests may not participate in IAS–USA CME activities.
The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) defines ineligible companies as “those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.”
IAS–USA will identify and resolve ahead of time any possible conflicts of interest that may influence CME activities with regard to exposition or conclusion. Information about financial relationships with ineligible companies for the presenter and planners/reviewers is below and in the slides prior to the presentation of educational content.
