Product code :320100VA

In September 2014, Thomas Eric Duncan traveled from Monrovia, Liberia, to Dallas, Texas. Within days he became ill, sought care, was tested for and confirmed to have Ebola infection, was treated in isolation, and died. Two nurses who cared for him in Dallas contracted Ebola infection and were transferred to specialty hospitals. These events continue to generate international attention and controversy over the preparedness of US hospitals to screen for, diagnose, and treat Ebola infection at a time when other infectious diseases such as Enterovirus infection are causing concern among health care providers and illness and death in US communities. Emergency physicians and nurses have expressed the need for more information, education, and training in the screening, diagnosis, treatment, and disposition of Ebola infection and other infectious diseases, and recommendations appear to be changing as the US health care system gains more experience and understanding. These three courses on Ebola infection and other travel-borne illnesses were presented live at the 2014 ACEP Scientific Assembly and have been recorded for dissemination to a larger audience. All three courses are free and include pretests and post-tests. Approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ and ACEP Category I credit.
