Communicable Diseases: Childhood & Travelers (v2)

Course overview

The spread of disease is not new, but how we handle the outbreaks and the spread of diseases is critical.

EMS providers are in a unique position to be among the first to recognize patterns or trends of illnesses in the community, and to help prevent a larger outbreak of a communicable disease. The current influenza threat from the H1N1 virus is reviewed.
