NYC Medical Reserve Corps "Infection & Exposure Control In A Biological Emergency"
Wednesday, April 24, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
New York, NY
DOHMH is responsible, in biological emergencies, for preventing exposure and transmission in all sectors of NYC. This effort is challenged by the size of the city, and by the many and intricate interfaces and interactions between and among populations, infrastructures, and environments.
Standard infection and exposure control guidance tends to address discrete populations, predictable exposures, and controlled environments. Nevertheless, established infection control principles, adapted to account for scale, complexity, and uncertainty, provide a sound basis for effectively managing all phases of a biological emergency.
This presentation covers the basics of large scale, population based, infection and exposure control in our multifaceted and densely populated urban environment. Department of Health Infection Control Coordinator, Pamela Kellner, RN, MPH will give this presentation.
Dinner and registration will begin at 5:30pm
