Is monkeypox the next big superbug? Should I receive a vaccine for monkeypox? Many questions still exist, but one thing is for sure that pharmacists have been getting questions from patients about Monkeypox and some pharmacists have already started vaccinating patients, identifying patients with symptoms and dispensing treatment. This online learning course will review a wide range of information about monkeypox, including epidemiology, pathophysiology, signs and symptoms, transmission, treatment and vaccines and recommendations for use in preventing monkeypox.
The goal and key takeaways of this learning activity are to provide pharmacists and pharmacy students with the foundational knowledge about monkeypox disease, mitigation, treatment, and prevention to better equip them to confidently answer questions from their patients.
