We need your input for a possible Ebola webcast

Hi folks –

We at HCPro are discussing the possibility of hosting a special webcast about infection control – and focusing quite specifically on the Ebola situation—from a healthcare safety and readiness standpoint.

Also, with the Enterovirus going around as well, we feel there is a lot of misinformation and potential panic in U.S. hospitals and clinics about their readiness. We thought it would be a good time to do a webcast that could talk about how hospitals can prepare for patients, how to properly disinfect rooms, and isolation procedures.

I’d like your input on a couple things:

1)      Is there interest in such a program, and what would you like to see in such a program?

2)      We are looking for potential speakers/experts who would like to participate in the webcast, and can help us develop an agenda.

Due to the timely nature of the subject, we are looking to do this in mid- to late November, and certainly before Thanksgiving. If you are interested in participating, or can point me in the right direction towards potential sources, I would be much obliged.

Have a great day, and as always feel free to contact me at jpalmer@hcpro.com.
