CDC posts new Ebola preparedness training for ED personnel

Posted on: 2/18/15

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has posted four online training videos developed by Johns Hopkins Medicine to help emergency department personnel identify, triage and briefly manage patients who might have Ebola. The training is based on CDC’s recommended three-step strategy – identify, isolate and inform – for managing possible Ebola cases, but can help prepare ED staff for patients with any highly infectious disease, the authors said. The course was produced by the Johns Hopkins Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality in collaboration with others. (AHA News Now, Feb. 17, 2015)
