COCA Calls/Webinars are designed to increase clinicians' knowledge and competencies of threats to the public's health, their effects on human populations and evaluation, and management strategies of these threats.
Topics Covered: Public Health Emergencies
Due to the ongoing Ebola virus disease (Ebola) outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, subject matter experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will discuss the current status of Ebola diagnostic testing that is available through the Laboratory Response Network (LRN) and CDC in the United States. The presenters will also discuss considerations around using OraQuick® Ebola Rapid Antigen Test (RDT), the first Ebola RDT that FDA has allowed for marketing in the United States.
During this COCA Call, clinicians will learn about options for testing for suspected Ebola virus infection in coordination with state and local public health authorities and CDC, as well as the benefits and limitations of existing diagnostic tools.
