The recent Ebola crisis sent shockwaves throughout the public and within healthcare facilities. With the potential for an Ebola outbreak in the United States still a possibility, preparedness is crucial. Good planning for Ebola can apply to future concerns with other high-risk infectious diseases.

With so much for hospitals to keep track of related to Ebola preparedness, efforts to manage the details of technology and other devices may get lost in the shuffle. Hospitals are left wondering if their equipment management processes, specifically for medical devices and personal protective equipment (PPE), are adequate for treating patients with Ebola and protecting the workforce.

Join ECRI Institute and other experts on Wednesday, December 3, 2014, for an overview of Ebola preparedness. “Ebola: Medical Device and Personal Protective Equipment Preparedness” is a 90-minute interactive web conference with dedicated Q&A time for participants to ask specific questions.


This web conference is free for ECRI Institute Health Devices System™, Health Devices Gold™, and SELECTplus™ members. List price for archive recording and materials is $249.
