The current outbreak of Ebola virus disease in West Africa has been declared by the World Health Organization as a public health emergency of international concern, and the United Nations has declared it a threat to international peace and security. What are the implications for Australian health services and clinicians?

While Ebola virus is a very serious disease with high mortality rates it is not readily transmitted from person to person and good infection control practice has been shown to prevent spread.

The presentation will cover:

  • What is Ebola virus disease?
  • Clinical presentation
  • Epidemiology
  • Public health and health system preparedness

This webcast is available for registered participants for 3 weeks.
