The National Emerging Special Pathogens Training and Education Center course Identify, Isolate, Inform will discuss the assessment, management, and placement of persons suspected to have Ebola and Other Special Pathogens. It will explain the tiered system developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a national framework to coordinate a networked approach to mitigate disease transmission and activate resources within your state and FEMA region. This course is designed for an audience of healthcare providers.

It is critical that healthcare personnel have knowledge of Ebola and other special pathogens of concern and their implications for healthcare delivery in a biocontainment unit (BCU). In the National Emerging Special Pathogens Training and Education Center course Special Pathogens of Concern, learners will be able to describe pathogen-related factors that may warrant treatment in a biocontainment unit and they will be able to distinguish between concepts of infectious, communicable, and hazardous as they relate to Ebola and other special pathogens of concern. Learners will also be able to describe the clinical presentation of selected special pathogens from the two broad categories: viral hemorrhagic fevers and the highly pathogenic respiratory viruses.

In the National Emerging Special Pathogens Training and Education Center course Infection Control for Special Pathogen Isolation covers the importance of having robust infection control procedures in place to care for a patient with Ebola or other special pathogen, including patient placement, patient care, donning and doffing personal protective equipment and how to transfer and dispose of waste from care of the patient.
