More Ebola Education Materials for CME Providers

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 published 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 the dates noted. Users should consult the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (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.

In order to assess our impact in this endeavor, the ACCME and the AHA ask that you take a short survey to inform us whether or not you used these materials and to provide us with some information about who we have reached.

We appreciate the many positive responses we have received already about your distribution of these materials. The CME community has the ability to provide critically needed education to address this public health priority. Please continue to join us in taking action.
