Ebola is no longer a tropical disease that occurs only in isolated regions of Africa. In 2014, it crossed borders through highly populated areas and reached the United States. Global efforts are required to prevent the spread. As with other infectious diseases, prevention is the best defense. Healthcare professionals armed with evidence-based knowledge are crucial to this process and should be well suited to provide the best care possible to those stricken with Ebola. The goal of this course is to provide healthcare professionals in acute care settings with evidence-based information about Ebola virus disease through a review of the events that started in the 2014 to 2016 Ebola outbreak to guide detection of cases, prevent transmission of infection, and provide safe management of patients with the disease.
