The American Society for Microbiology’s (ASM) is partnering with the Pakistani Biological Safety Association (PBSA) to offer a short biocontainment course, CCHF: Working Towards Zero Secondary Infections. If you are a hospital employee working with infectious patients, a laboratorian working with CCHF samples, or generally an infection control professional, we want to work with you towards the goal of zero secondary CCHF infections in Pakistan. As part of working towards this goal ASM – PBSA are offering this short course before Eid Al-Adha, the week of 13 August, facilitated by biorisk management expert and course developer Mr. Sean Kaufman. The course will be conducted on Monday 13 August, Wednesday 15 August, and Friday 17 August for 2 hour long sessions at 11am Pakistan time.
This program has been designed for healthcare professionals and providers who work in emergency rooms, triage centers, patient transport, hospital administration, and intensive care units – who may have come in direct contact with infected patients or those suspected to have a CCHF infection.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS PROGRAM IS OFFERED THROUGH AN ONLINE LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM – ACCESS TO THE INTERNET THROUGH A COMPUTER OR MOBILE DEVISE IS NECESSARY.
The registrations will be open to only 200 locations, meaning multiple people can view the training from a single location. So it would be helpful if institutions, rather than individuals, register for the course, hence allowing multiple people to gain benefit for one site.
