Educational Materials – Ebola Emergency Preparedness

Regarding the current Ebola emergency, ACPE is providing the following resources and references from the American Hospital Association (AHA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The American Hospital Association (AHA) has provided additional educational materials for CME providers to use:

Ebola Facts: Hospital Preparedness Checklist (October 15, 2014)

Ebola Facts: Surgical Protocol—Possible or Confirmed Ebola Cases (October 16, 2014)

The AHA has also revised its Informational PowerPoint: Ebola Facts initially posted on October 14. These PowerPoint materials add to the package of educational materials that we sent you earlier this week. The materials contain information that the American Hospital Association believes would be useful to healthcare providers and institutions right now.

Please note: These materials are current as of October 17, 2014. Users should consult the Centers for Disease Control (CDC ) or other cited sources on the day they access this information to get the most current information or version that may now be available. If you have specific questions about the information and recommendations contained in the attached material, we ask that you immediately contact the CDC or your local public health authority or infection control officer for the information you seek.

The educational materials and more information about how you might use them are available on our Ebola Education Web page.
