The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this month will host a webinar focused on training hospital epidemiologists in the interpersonal skills necessary to handle a disease outbreak.
The webinar — hosted in conjunction with the Society of Healthcare Epidemiology of America — is part of the joint Outbreak Response Training Program. The webinar aims to train hospital epidemiologists on:
- six core principles of crisis emergency risk communication;
- developing crisis communication plans;
- creating crisis communication templates using tools and resources offered by CDC; and
- the importance of tailoring communications to the relevant audience.
The 90-minute webinar will start at 1:30 pm ET, Feb. 6. Contact Director of Policy Erin O’Malley at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202.585.0127 with questions.
