The Invisible Threat – Planning for Infectious Disease Outbreaks & Epidemics will be the featured topic during the next installment of the Continuity Insights Webinar Series scheduled for Thursday, January 31, 2019. Respected industry authority Suzanne Bernier, President of SB Crisis Consulting, will lead the discussion and walk attendees through the key elements required for an effective infectious disease plan, as well as recommended enhancements to those plans based on case studies and lessons learned.
Bernier will review recent, emerging, and residual infectious disease threats, as well as case studies and lessons learned from SARS and H1N1.
Recently, Ebola has made a resurgence in West Africa, with a total of over 600 cases now reported in the Democratic Republic of Congo. As a direct result, an American healthcare worker is currently being monitored in Nebraska after possibly being exposed to the virus while treating patients in Congo.
Adding the Ebola resurgence to the new case of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) found in South Korea just a few months ago, as well as recent measles and influenza outbreaks across North America, it’s clear the threat of a possible infectious disease outbreak or epidemic within our own community or workplace is a constant reality. In addition, new and emerging health threats, along with increased global travel, show we are still vulnerable to a possible pandemic that could be far worse than H1N1.
Be sure to join this crucial discussion and come away with:
– Knowledge and insight into new and emerging viruses of concern across the globe
– Lessons learned and case studies from SARS and the H1N1 pandemic to help you enhance your current infectious disease plans
– Additional tools and guidance to support your infectious disease planning efforts
The webinar will begin at 2:00 p.m. EDT and will allow time for audience participation and Q&A. Register free for The Invisible Threat – Planning for Infectious Disease Outbreaks & Epidemics here.
