Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), American Hospital Association (AHA), and Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME)
The ABC community has the ability to provide critically needed education to address this public health priority. We are sharing this information and encourage you to share with all health care professionals.
In response to the Ebola public health emergency, the CDC, AHA and ACCME have provided an Ebola education package for providers. This package contains information that is useful to healthcare providers and institutions right now. It includes:
In a press briefing on October 13, Tom Frieden, MD, MPH, Director, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said, “What we need to do is all take responsibility for improving the safety of those on the front lines….All of us have to work together to do whatever is possible to reduce the risk that any other healthcare worker becomes infected….We will double down on training, outreach, education and assistance throughout the health care system, through professional associations, through hospitals, through group organizations and individuals reaching out to health departments at the state and county levels in cities and elsewhere so that we can increase the awareness of Ebola and increase the ability to respond rapidly.”
