Highly Infectious Disease Theme Week
August 25, 2019 - August 31, 2019
The Highly Infectious Disease Training Week is intended to broaden the training experience of healthcare responders beginning with the first recognition of illness, and continues through treatment, isolation and recovery. Healthcare response is part of an overall community response and may involve many agencies, departments, organizations and facilities to ensure students effectively respond to and recover from the dangers of infectious diseases.
The Highly Infectious Disease Training Week will provide the student with the best practice, knowledge, and skills for triaging, transporting, transferring, treating, and managing persons with highly infectious diseases. Students will attend Subject Matter Expert discussions of best practices for managing and treating persons with a highly infectious disease throughout the week. Students receive demonstrations and practical experience required to prevent provider and other patient contamination by managing events in a realistic healthcare setting to ensure best practices in barrier precautions and infection-control procedures.
