Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
Please join the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for a webinar for healthcare coalitions on Ebola preparedness.
The purpose of this webinar will be to review a Checklist for Healthcare Coalitions for Ebola Preparedness developed by ASPR and CDC to highlight activities that all healthcare coalitions can take to prepare for the possibility of a patient exposed to Ebola arriving for medical care. The checklist provides practical and specific suggestions to ensure healthcare coalition members are able to detect possible Ebola cases, protect employees, and respond appropriately.
In addition, this webinar will provide an education training session for healthcare coalitions related to some of the key issues currently facing U.S. hospitals. Topics to be addressed include lessons learned from Dallas, an overview of updated personal protective equipment (PPE) recommendations, PPE considerations (including proper putting on, removal, and disposal of PPE), and considerations for managing staffing concerns.
The presentation portion of this's webinar can be accessed using multiple links. Please use a link that corresponds to your geographic location. All links will display the same information at the same time. The time zone separation is simply an attempt to distribute users; all links are available to all participants regardless of time zone.
