National Ebola Training and Education Center
The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have established the National Ebola Training and Education Center (NETEC) to increase the competency of healthcare and public health workers and the capability of healthcare facilities to deliver safe, efficient, and effective Ebola patient care.
The National Ebola Training and Education Center is comprised of faculty and staff from Emory University, the University of Nebraska Medical Center/Nebraska Medicine and the New York Health and Hospitals Corporation, Bellevue Hospital Center. All three of these healthcare institutions have safely and successfully treated patients with Ebola and have worked diligently over the past year to share their knowledge with other healthcare facilities and public health jurisdictions. The goal of the NETEC is to combine these resources into one comprehensive assessment, educational and training tool for healthcare systems throughout the United States.
