Coronavirus Differential Diagnosis for Primary Care Nurse Practitioners

Not only are you new to practice, but you’re dealing with a new virus AND likely doing it by telemedicine.

This isn’t easy.

In this video I’m covering the top differentials to consider when your patients are asking about coronavirus, how to differentiate between them, and how to decide about who to test and what treatments to do.

I wish I had all the answers – no one does! – but hopefully this will help you feel more confident triaging, educating and treating your patients.

  1. Thank you for this. I’m working in the hospital setting. You provided a quick refresher on how to narrow down the different presentations to come up with an appropriate diagnosis. Very helpful.
