"This was an excellent, well-organized succinct presentation on how to respond to highly infectious disease outbreaks in the Emergency Department.  Your lecture was greatly enhanced by your experience and expertise as a Physician & Co-Chief, inf Emergency Management, as well as, a Professor of Emergency Medicine @ George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences.

Great lecture, there is certainly a necessity to obtain a social/travel history with pts. entering your health care facility.  Where I attended graduate school we had a very large international student population where many travel home @ Christmas break and during the Summer semester.  Some of the graduate international students were married with children and actually have their extended families (parents) relocate to the US and live with them to help raise their children while they complete their education.  Many times both husband and wife are completing their advanced degrees students.  In the past when I worked as a nurse @ their Health Service, we had an international student enter the clinic who actually had Yellow Fever, but was misdiagnosed with Influenza.  Thus, it is extremely important to obtain a travel history on anyone regardless of where they may reside. 

It is also important that we as health care professionals keep up-to-date on our continuing education in order to be prepared to treat our pts to the best of our ability.  We need to have access to information concerning international medical diseases usually not seen in the US.  Thankfully, today with the Internet and the wealth of other medical web-sites, obtaining current information from the CDC etc. are simply @ our fingertips.  Yes, indeed, we are blessed to have  QuantiMD and other medical websites to keep current and have CME accessible to aid us this task.         

 

Thanks,

Valerie"
