The Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (HHS) will provide a $12 million award to create a Nat’l Ebola Training and Education Center (NETEC) (Funding Number: EP-U3R-15-003).
Deadline: May 20.
The center will help prepare the U.S. health care system to safely assess and care for patients with suspected and confirmed Ebola. It will offer expertise, training, technical assistance, peer review, monitoring, recognition and certification, if feasible, to state health departments, regional, state and local Ebola centers and hospitals. The NETEC will be comprised primarily of experts from health care institutions with direct experience in caring for patients with Ebola in the United States.
The NETEC will:
- Build a comprehensive set of activities and deliverables for public health departments, S. health care providers and facilities needed to safely and successfully identify, isolate, assess, transport and treat patients with Ebola or persons under investigation for the disease.
- Develop and lead a national peer review and recognition program for regional Ebola and other special pathogen treatment centers and Ebola treatment centers.
- Modify materials developed as the Ebola outbreak evolves and the science changes.
