FEMA readies Ebola training for 500 doctors and nurses

http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/hcp/safety-training-course/detailed-information.html

The course will also require participants to don and doff different levels of PPE under supervision of instructors and conduct several practical exercises in full PPE, including the following: a simulated patient and/or body transport, cleaning and disinfecting a simulated patient care area, a simulated waste disposal exercise, a simulated patient care exercise (including drawing blood from a simulated patient and packaging a simulated specimen for transport and testing), responding to a breach in PPE in a simulated high-risk area of an ETU. Please note that this training course contains simulated patient-care activities only; no actual patients with Ebola infections will be involved in the course.
