Lessons from the Ebola Crisis: Global Health on Your Doorstep
Presented by: Ed Zuroweste, MD
December 17, 2014
10am PT | 12pm CT | 1pm ET
This free webinar is accredited for 1 hour of continuting nursing education or 1 hour of medical education.
Dr. Ed Zuroweste training clinicians in West Africa
We all live in an increasingly globalized world which is beset with economic and political crises as well as profound disparities in opportunity and access to scarce resources. Within this context, migration is a constant. Mobility within nations as well as internationally is an ever growing reality for many people throughout the world. Migration involves hundreds of millions of people worldwide, with major social and economic impacts on both countries of origin and destinations.
The link between mobility and the spread of disease has always been present. However the increased speed of travel and growing numbers of migrants changes the dynamics of disease and has enormous implications for healthcare providers in all regions of the world. The recent outbreak of Ebola in Western Africa shows just how important mobility is to the spread of disease.
In this webinar, Edward Zuroweste, MD, will discuss important lessons learned from the Ebola crisis based on his first-hand experience training clinicians in Sierra Leon and Guinea with the World Health Organization. The session will also discuss several other key infectious diseases currently seen in patients migrating to and from the United States. Participants will explore strategies to implement in primary care to raise the index of suspicious to assist clinic systems in better identifying health concerns for migrants.
Describe how lessons learned from the Ebola crisis can influence health system policies to avoid future mistakes.
Describe what primary care clinics in the United States can do to develop systems to identify, treat and prevent infectious diseases.
Case studies will be used to emphasis to the participants how good history taking is becoming an even more important tool in the clinical diagnostic toolbox.
Discuss strategies to effectively provide continuity of care to a mobile patient population.
