“Leading Clinical Placements: A Primer for Preceptors,” facilitated by Dr. Michael Feldman
The following video presents a lecture, titled “Leading Clinical Placements: A Primer for Preceptors,” facilitated by Dr. Michael Feldman at CTS Canadian Career College’s Barrie Campus on May 18, 2016.
The 2014 Ebola outbreak is the largest in history, affecting multiple countries in West Africa. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have confirmed 7470 cases of Ebola and 3431 total deaths. On September 30th, 2014, the CDC confirmed the first travel-associated case of Ebola to be diagnosed in the United States. CDC and partners are taking precautions to prevent the spread of Ebola within the United States. But what’s being done in Canada? This raises a lot of important question for paramedics: Are paramedics prepared for an outbreak in Ontario? What precautions should be taken by paramedics? How can Ebola be recognized in the field? How can paramedics play an important role in protecting Ontario’s health care system?
On October 14th, 2014, CTS Canadian Career College medical director Dr. Michael Feldman addressed these timely questions surrounding an Ebola outbreak in Canada, as well as presented a summary of the best recent articles from the prehospital literature.
Whether you’re an academic or skills instructor, a preceptor, a paramedic student, or you’re simply interested in what’s being done in Canada to prepare for an Ebola outbreak, this recorded talk will provide you with some valuable insight into these timely topics.
