Summary:

Ebola is no longer a tropical disease that occurs only in isolated regions of Africa. It has crossed borders through highly populated areas and reached the U.S. Global efforts will be required to stop continued spread. As with other infectious diseases, prevention is the best defense. Healthcare professionals armed with evidence-based knowledge are crucial to this process and well suited to provide the best care possible to those who have been stricken with Ebola.

Objectives:

The goal of this program is to provide healthcare professionals with evidence-based information about Ebola virus disease to guide detection of cases, prevent transmission of infection, and safely manage patients with the disease. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe the clinical features of EVD
  • Explain the screening process for the identification of probable and possible cases of EVD
  • Identify appropriate isolation precautions to use to safely manage patients with EVD
 
The Florida Board of Nursing will not accept contact hours offered in tenth hour increments (example: 1.6 contact hours). Course contact hours will be rounded down to the nearest half hour (example: 1.6 contact hours becomes 1.5 contact hours, 1.4 contact hours becomes 1.0 contact hours).
