About the COVID-19 Global Clinical Knowledge Base

The COVID-19 Global Clinical Knowledge Base was created to establish a curated and easily-searchable directory of publicly-available practice guidelines, clinical protocols, and other pertinent resources for clinicians and other healthcare professionals fighting the pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. We hope this will be a accessible, effective, and efficient tool for clinicians treating patients with COVID-19, hospitals/health systems creating COVID-19 response plans, and anyone seeking to stay informed about the response of the healthcare system to the the COVID-19 pandemic. Our site itself does not constitute medical advice, and the opinions and/or recommendations contained within the resources listed on this site belong entirely to the source organization or individual.

Submit a publicly available resource that will help clinicians screen, diagnose, and treat COVID-19; will provide guidance about use or re-use of personal protective equipment (PPE); relates to system- or government-wide control of SARS-CoV-2 infection or transmission; assists non ICU-trained providers quickly learn about delivering ICU care; or provides other relevant, scientifically rigorous, and evidence-based information regarding COVID-19.

This site was created and is maintained by Will McKleroy, MD, and Aartik Sarma, MD, from the UCSF Pulmonary/Critical Care Fellowship Program in collaboration with UCSF Web Services.

A prototype of this site was developed by a team MIT engineering students and supported through MIT Hacking Medicine. We would like to acknowledge their thoughtful and creative additions to the site as well as their commitment to providing assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic.
