Johns Hopkins Medicine Leading Development of Ebola Training Program

The free, web-based program will train health care providers on proper donning of PPE, safe removal of gear, and active monitoring skills.

At CDC's direction, Johns Hopkins Medicine will lead a group that designs an interactive, web-based learning program that guides health care workers, nurses, and physicians through government-approved protocols in caring for patients who may be at risk of contracting the Ebola virus, Johns Hopkins University announced Oct. 24.

The program will be available free on CDC's website within a few weeks and available to millions of iOS users on iTunes U. It will train health care providers in these critical areas:

  • Proper donning of personal protective equipment
  • Safe removal of gear
  • Active monitoring skills

Infection prevention and safety experts from the Johns Hopkins Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality are leading this effort and already spent five days working with U.S. experts in infectious disease, nursing, systems engineering, content development, and visual design to create an interactive learning experience for health care workers.

"This is a unique time in health care where collaboration between public, private, and government entities is essential to help solve this new crisis," said Peter Pronovost, senior vice president for patient safety and quality improvement at Johns Hopkins Medicine and director of the Armstrong Institute. "This innovative environment has prompted spirited discussions from different areas of expertise, and these types of respectful conversations result in a better resource for nurses and physicians—and an overall better health outcome for dedicated care providers across our nation."
