Description

Monoclonal antibody (mAb) therapy has exhibited clinical benefit for treatment of mild-to-moderate COVID-19 in non-hospitalized patients who are at high risk for progression to severe disease. More recently, certain mAbs have been approved for post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) of COVID-19 in high-risk individuals. Pharmacists in various practice settings have opportunities to impact patient care related to use of mAb in COVID-19. This CE program is intended to educate pharmacists on available mAb therapeutics, highlight their role in treatment and PEP of COVID-19, and provide resources for infusion sites offering mAb to patients. Click here for the latest COVID-19 Monoclonal Antibody Toolkit.
