CDC Workshops: Preparing for Infectious Disease Epidemics

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will host two free workshops with the National Ebola Training and Education Center (NETEC) to train health care workers on delivering patient care during an infectious disease epidemic.

The first workshop will focus on infectious disease preparedness and will be held March 2122 in Omaha, Neb., and April 2728 in Atlanta. This workshop — for health care workers and public health officials — will include preparedness training on:

  • pathogens of concern;
  • standard operating procedures;
  • hands-on simulation skills;
  • emergency management;
  • leadership strategies; and
  • state and regional operational planning.

For clinicians, CDC and NETEC will hold a separate simulation training workshop on April 34 and June 56 in New York. This workshop will include immersive simulations and clinical skills stations. The training will count toward continuing medical education and continued nursing education.

Contact Director of Policy Erin O’Malley at eomalley@essentialhospitals.org or 202.585.0127 with questions.
