COVID-19 Urgent Resource Video Education (CURVE)
The Massachusetts General Hospital COVID-19 Urgent Resource Video Education (CURVE) platform is a collection of recordings from COVID-19-focused hospital Grand Rounds and departmental lectures, along with procedure/instructional videos and other digital content in collaboration with many Mass General care teams. By highlighting clinical and research expertise related to the Mass General response to COVID-19, it provides consolidated access to a complementary catalog of educational materials to support providers across professions and disciplines.
CURVE is a "living" digital video education platform that supports all clinicians in learning how to take care of COVID-19 patients. Each clinician responding to the COVID-19 crisis will have different needs based on local resources and workforce. CURVE is a video-based, easy-access educational platform to support COVID-based clinical care and operations.
We begin by sharing a consolidated catalog of existing videos (previously recorded lectures/grand rounds and instructional videos) created and/or hosted across a variety of Mass General clinical units. In leveraging that unique collection as "source material," we aim to create additional focused video content based on our collective experience in caring for COVID-19 patients (including special video "dispatches" and evolving core "chapter" content). Because time is of the essence, we are not waiting to publish a fully-finished collection, but rather to share material as soon as it is created and reviewed by our team. What results is a video "textbook in-progress" that we hope will continue to grow and evolve into a comprehensive resource to support colleagues across institutions and systems of care.
