The Ebola hemorrhagic fever, commonly referred to simply as Ebola, is an acute, serious illness, which is often fatal if untreated. As part of a comprehensive and coordinated response to the 2014 Ebola epidemic in West Africa, CDC provides an introductory training course for licensed clinicians (e.g., nurses, physicians and other healthcare providers). During this course, we will discuss the background, pathophysiology, and transmission of the Ebola virus. This course will provide information concerning the diagnosis and treatment of the virus as well as other challenges related to teaching health professionals about the best practices to avoid contact and accidental transmission of this deadly disease.
