COVID-19 has impacted the entire world and will keep impacting it for the months if not years to come. The general practitioner (GP) plays an important role in the 1st line management of this pandemic in prevention, counselling, diagnosing, testing and treating of patients. Translating all new insights into appropriate decision making in daily clinical practice will be crucial.

EURACT and WONCA Europe, together with the medical education society ISSECAM, have developed this case-based CME programme to allow efficient learning on COVID-19 management in family medicine.

Cases are structured in series of 5, each covering a relevant topic in the management of COVID-19. This topic is about testing of COVID-19 in relation to the time of symptom onset or epidemiological situation.
