Abualenain, J. and Al-Alawid, M. (2018). Simulation-Based Training in Ebola Personal Protective Equipment for Healthcare Workers: Experience from King Abdulaziz University Hospital in Saudi Arabia. Journal of Infection and Public Health. 11(6): 796-800.
This article describes the development and results of a simulation-based training program for healthcare workers in Saudi Arabia that was focused on donning of personal protective equipment (PPE) to care for a person under investigation with Ebola. The curriculum consisted of a needs assessment, Train-the-Trainer session, 10 PPE courses, and a post-intervention drill. Significant improvement in the skills of the participants was noted through comparison of pre-test and post-test scores.
