Full course description

The National Ebola Training and Education Center is comprised of subject matter experts from Emory University, University of Nebraska Medical Center/Nebraska Medicine, and NYC Health+Hospitals-Bellevue and combines the resources of health care institutions experienced in treating Ebola to offer training, readiness assessments and expertise to help facilities prepare for Ebola and other special pathogens.

Each fall and spring we offer in-person training courses at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (Omaha, NE) and Emory University (Atlanta, GA). 

These workshops provide information and tools on the many aspects of managing and maintaining readiness of a facility responsible for assessing and/or treating patients with an Emerging Infectious Disease. This includes an overview of various pathogens of concern, standard operating procedures for such pathogens, laboratory considerations, leadership skills for sustaining readiness, state and regional CONOPS planning, exercise development, train the trainer program on personal protective equipment, behavioral health considerations and experiencing hands on simulated clinical care skills in PPE.
