Ebola Education Materials, Posted October 22

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

Ebola Practice Evidence Classification Chart (October 20, 2014)

Ebola Facts: Clinical Progression of Ebola (October 20, 2014)

Ebola Facts: Revised Guidance on PPE for Healthcare Workers; Recommended Administrative and Environmental Controls for Healthcare Facilities (October 21, 2014)

These materials add to the package of educational materials that we published last 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.

If you have not already done so, 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. These survey results will help us to assess our impact in this endeavor.

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.
