(Satellite Broadcast) Preparing for the Return of SARS: Are we ready? - Part 1
Course Number: SB0139
Start Date: 9/23/2003 2:00 PM ET
End Date: 9/23/2003 4:00 PM ET
Control of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) begins at the clinical interface --- suspicion, prompt recognition, appropriate diagnostics, and rapid implementation of infection prevention measures. This program will assist healthcare providers in preparing to diagnose and manage patients with SARS should cases be suspected or identified in the coming months. Although the likelihood of SARS re-emerging in the US and elsewhere is not known, the seasonal emergence of similar respiratory diseases forces us to prepare for that possibility.
Preparing for the Return of SARS: Are we ready? will be presented in two parts both targeted toward healthcare providers and key state and local public health personnel. The programs are scheduled for broadcast and webcast on September 23 and 30, 2003. Following the live programs, the information presented will be available in a variety of formats, including webstreaming, videotape, CD-ROM, and slide sets.
