Acute Respiratory Illness Pandemic Training for Healthcare Workers

For most healthy adults, seasonal viruses are not generally life-threatening. But as you’ve seen in the news, respiratory disease pandemics, such as those caused by coronaviruses or influenza, are something else. They often involve new strains of viruses to which people have developed no immunity. These kinds of viruses can spread quickly and widely, and they can pose a major global health threat. That’s why you need to know about acute respiratory illness pandemics and how to prepare for them. The main objective of this course is to make you aware of the risks of pandemics, the potential problems we could all face should we be hit with a pandemic, and the precautions you would need to take to keep you, your family, and your patients safe.
