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 21–22 in Omaha, Neb., and April 27–28 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 3–4 and June 5–6 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.
