EBOLA FRONTLINE

Confronting this deadly battle firsthand

This powerful documentary confronts the key issues in the fight against the deadly Ebola virus, giving a firsthand view of its physical and emotional impact on whole families and on the medical staff treating them. With specially adapted cameras attached to their goggles, volunteers from Medecins Sans Frontières - Doctors Without Borders' (MSF) working in the high risk zone of an Ebola Case Management Centre in Sierra Leone give viewers a very real sense of what it's like on the frontline.

Their pain and despair is all too clear when they have to separate parents from a sick child and then when that child loses their fight for life. But even in these desperately difficult circumstances there are moments of euphoria as patients who have been cured leave the centre. Exclusive footage also reveals the medical staff's frustrations at the lack of support from the international community and pharmaceutical companies in fighting the Ebola virus, which has been responsible for more than 5,000 deaths since the outbreak began.

ANTI-INFECTIVE MEDICATION THERAPY: ANTIFUNGAL AND ANTIVIRAL AGENTS

Since the advent of penicillin in the 1940s, medications have played an important role in the treatment of infectious diseases. Initially focused on the development and use of antibiotics to treat bacterial infections, in recent decades, the focus has broadened to include antifungal and antiviral agents. Because nurses are frequently called upon to administer anti-infective agents, this series was developed to provide the information they need to recognize the signs and symptoms of infection, the medications typically used in treatment, and the associated precautions and side effects.

This program provides nurses with a detailed look at antifungals and antivirus medications.

INFECTION CONTROL IN HEALTHCARE

Infection control in a health care setting is a fundamental responsibility shared by all staff. This video resource will ensure that infection control is front of mind for every worker. It starts by outlining the four principles of infection control, followed by a detailed examination of standard precautions that must be undertaken at all times, including a step-by-step demonstration of correct hand washing technique. Transmission-based precautions are explained, grouped into three broad groups: contact, droplet, and airborne. Finally, organisational support is described, including the importance of the infection control committee and regular health screenings for all staff.

ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE: 12 SIMPLE STEPS TOWARD PREVENTION

By Jerome F. Levine, MD

Antimicrobial resistance and the evolution of killer "superbugs" is a major concern in health care today. But physicians and health care workers need not accept this as an inevitable part of our health care landscape. Prevention of antimicrobial resistance is well within the grasp of every health care worker, and effective measures are not necessarily elaborate, expensive, or time consuming. In this video, Dr. Jerome Levine outlines 12 simple steps identified by the Centers for Disease Control that health care workers can personally implement to prevent harmful bacteria from infecting patients.

IMMUNIZATION UPDATE: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

By Richard Zimmerman, MD

Despite the availability of safe and effective vaccines, and the knowledge that vaccine-preventable diseases, such as influenza, chickenpox, polio, and hepatitis A and B infections, can cause profound complications and even death, many patients are not immunized. Dr. Zimmerman provides insight into this significant problem by presenting a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of immunization practices. He reviews the latest immunization recommendations from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Academy of Family Physicians, and explains how these recommendations can be applied in clinical practice. In addition, he describes the safety and efficacy of vaccines currently used in children and adults and discusses vaccine use in high-risk populations, among other important issues.

SARS UPDATE: PREPARING FOR A POSSIBLE OUTBREAK IN THE UNITED STATES

By Michael R. Grey, MD, MPH

In this program, Dr. Michael Grey discusses steps that practitioners can take to prepare for and deal with a potential outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). Dr. Grey summarizes the epidemiology and pathogenesis of SARS, and he discusses the differential diagnosis of this potentially fatal infectious disease within the context of two hypothetical cases. In the first, a patient presents with an atypical and rapidly progressing pneumonia of unknown origin; the patient is a strong candidate for SARS based on his risk factors (he has recently traveled to a SARS-endemic region of the world) and his clinical presentation. Conversely, in the second case, a patient with an upper respiratory infection is not a likely candidate for SARS because she lacks key elements of the typical SARS patient history and clinical presentation. Yet SARS must also be considered in her differential diagnosis. Laboratory and imaging tests to identify the SARS coronavirus are summarized. Dr. Grey discusses the importance of expediting sputum samples to a local health department or directly to the CDC. He reviews isolation and quarantine procedures that will be necessary if a SARS outbreak occurs, and he addresses palliative care for SARS patients. This telecourse also emphasizes the key role that general practitioners can play in calming patient apprehension about the onset of "normal" flu-like symptoms that are not symptoms of SARS. Viewers are informed about CDC and WHO Web sites that provide SARS updates.

TUBERCULOSIS IN THE WORKPLACE AND IN THE COMMUNITY

By Lee B. Reichman, MD, MPH

Although tuberculosis (TB) rates in the United States are at historic lows, TB still occurs each year in health care institutions, nursing homes, assisted-living facilities, schools, industrial sites, prisons, and other community settings. This program discusses the role of the primary care physician in the early detection and prompt treatment of TB in the community. It focuses on the non-HIV patient with active TB. Epidemiology, risk factors, symptoms, and transmission of TB are reviewed. Special attention is given to the diagnosis of active TB in foreign-born and native-born individuals who are at high risk for TB. Treatments for active and latent TB are summarized. Reliance upon directly observed therapy is stressed, as is the need for ongoing communication among general practitioners and local public health officials, especially in communities where the risk of TB is high. This telecourse is based at the New Jersey Medical School National Tuberculosis Center, one of the foremost TB clinics in the nation.

AVIAN INFLUENZA

By Alan M. Sanders, MD

Global concern about the potential for pandemic avian influenza is rooted in the pathogenicity of avian influenza virus strains in humans and the lack of immunity to these highly mutable viruses in the general population. Avian influenza A (H5N1) re-emerged in 2003 with greater virulence and a wider host range than that seen following its 1997 debut. Although transmission of avian influenza A (H5N1) from animals to humans remains inefficient at this time, mutation or genetic reassortment with human influenza virus strains could trigger an influenza pandemic facilitated by the mobility of modern society and the lack of an effective vaccine. Dr. Alan Sanders provides timely, practical advice on how to improve clinical awareness and implement strategies for diagnosing, treating, and preventing avian influenza.
