Siddle, J., Tolleson-Rinehart, S., and Brice, J. (2016). Survey of Emergency Department Staff on Disaster Preparedness and Training for Ebola Virus Disease. (Abstract only.) American Journal of Disaster Medicine. 11(1):5-18.
The authors evaluated the effects of targeted training on Emergency Department staff members’ Ebola-related perceptions and attitudes. Post-training survey responses across all disciplines demonstrated that participants felt better able to care for an Ebola patient and understood team roles better, and that the hospital was better prepared for Ebola response.
