Training on Hospital Management for Ebola Virus Disease: Workshop
This training workshop on Ebola virus disease (EVD) was developed and taught by the Philippines Department of Health, particularly staff of the Research Institute of Tropical Medicine, in collaboration with the Philippine country office of the World Health Organization assisted by consultants from Johns Hopkins Hospital, Tropical Health Solutions and employed privately. The focus of the workshop is on hospitals since it is highly likely that, if EVD occurs in a country, patients will be identified and managed within the hospital system.
The workshop was developed In October 2014 and modified over November 2014 after being taught in Manila to more than 350 health care professionals from over 50 Filipino hospitals.
The official WHO Philippine country office site for the workshop is available here. At the WHO site PDF files of workshop content are available for download. This current page provides the original documents in Word and PPT as well as links to the videos used in training.
How to Use these Materials
The intention of offering the files as Word documents or Powerpoint (PPT) files is to enable them to be modified by other users. The PPT files currently use the Philippine Department of Health Research Institute of Tropical Medicine (RITM) master format. However, this can be changed as desired. The workshop used the Philippine Department of Health interim guidelines on the management of EVD as the foundation document for activities relevant to country-specific action. If this workshop is adapted for use in other countries, the specific guidelines of that country should be used to replace the Philippine guidelines.
If you do use these files or the workshop, please cite the source as: Philippine Department of Health / World Health Organization. Training on hospital management for Ebola Virus Disease: Workshop. Research Institute for Tropical Medicine; Manilla. 2014.
The document EVD-workshop-Guide-final.docx is a guide to the workshop structure. It lists the objectives for each module and the file names relevant for that module. Modules are numbered 1-27 with multiple files in each module being numbered consecutively; e.g., 1.1, 1.2, etc.
Documents that are used in multiple modules may be found in the Documents section at the bottom of the page.
Content of the lectures was current as at November 19, 2014. However, since the knowledge about Ebola is accumulating rapidly and the epidemiology of the West African outbreak is dynamic, please update presentation before using them.
