CHCANYS x GNYHA x DOHMH Joint Webinar on Monoclonal Antibody Therapeutic Treatments
Monoclonal antibody (mAbs) therapeutic treatment has become an important tool in the fight against COVID-19, with the US Food and Drug Administration issuing emergency use authorizations for three therapies since November.
CHCANYS is hosting a webinar in partnership with the Greater New York Hospital Association (GNYHA) and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) to provide information on efficacy, safety, the treatment referral process, and what patients can expect.
We encourage FQHC clinicians, nurses, pharmacists, operations, and other staff involved in administering monoclonal antibody therapeutic treatments in your facility to participate, as well as staff involved in COVID-19 testing and follow-up. Please feel free to forward this invitation to all relevant staff members.
Introducing CHCANYS Emergency Human Resource and Volunteer Policy & Procedure Templates
We know that to effectively manage and operate though a public health emergency, community health centers must develop corresponding robust policies and procedures. To assist health centers with this task, CHCANYS Emergency Management created two policy & procedure templates/guidance documents:
Human Resource Policies and Procedures for FQHCs During Public Health Emergencies
Emergency/Disaster Volunteer Management Policies and Procedures for FQHCs
This webinar will review the structure of these templates and how to properly use them. You can submit any questions prior to the webinar during your registration

Afternoon Breakout Sessions from the following sectors:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity (COCA) hosted a call where clinicians learned how they could educate their patients on what to expect after COVID-19 vaccination.
What are the key steps facilities must follow to safely handle and administer the vaccine?
What are the best practices for storing and handling dry ice?
Which supplies are critical and which ones can you go without?
How are the doses prepared and what are some helpful strategies to avoid cross-contamination?
The experts also discussed lessons learned from front line workers in the UK where the vaccine is now being distributed. At the conclusion of the webcast, there was a Q&A session with ECRI doctors, senior engineers, and subject matter experts.
This COCA Call will give clinicians an overview of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. Clinicians will learn about vaccine characteristics and administration, vaccinating special populations, and contraindications. They will also get answers to a number of clinical questions CDC has received about these new vaccines.
