Ebola Preparedness: Emergency Department Training Modules

Page Summary

Who is this for: Emergency department (ED) staff

What is this for: Training to help ED staff prepare to evaluate whether or not a patient might have EVD.

CDC recommends that staff members screen all patients with travel histories, exposure, or clinical symptoms that might suggest the person could have EVD.

How this relates to other guidance: This training is based on Identify, Isolate, Inform: Emergency Department Evaluation and Management of Patients with Possible Ebola Virus Disease.
