The goal of this 4-week course is to equip learners to safely care for a patient infected with a pathogen requiring high-level biocontainment. This can be accomplished in any healthcare facility given the correct approach and protocols.

Please copy and paste the following link into a new tab/browser to view the video overview of our course. http://bit.ly/2bPZ6Cz

In this course, we will:
1. Discuss the essentials of intake screening.
2. Investigate pathogen transmission characteristics and the chain of infection.
3. Examine patient placement in a facility, as well as the engineering/ administrative controls.
4. Review personal protective equipment worn by the care providers.
5. Evaluate waste management and decontamination protocols.


We look forward to exploring and learning with you!
