Alliance Implements WHO Ebola Clinical Training

The first use of the WHO Ebola clinical team training was in Bong, Liberia in mid-September, where 35 clinicians (nurses, physician assistants) plus cleaners/sprayers/dead body managers in the facility were trained with International Medical Corps so they could open their ETU the following week. The following week, the IMAI Alliance trained trainers in Uganda then deployed (through WHO AFRO) 5 Ugandan and 1 Ethiopian trainer to Liberia, to start surge training in Monrovia, under the direction of Dr Shevin Jacob. At the end of September, phase 1 and 2 of the WHO Ebola clinical team training was started. In October, more than 400 health workers from Ministry of Health Liberia, the Cuban Medical Brigade, the African Union deployed clinicians and NGOs/other agencies including SCF, IOM, IRC, Friends of Liberia, and IHP. Twenty trainers from the US DOD were trained; they have now duplicated the training in 4 classrooms in Monrovia, while WHO/MOH continues training in 2 classrooms (each classroom trains 50 or more health workers per week). Mobile training teams from both US DOD and the WHO/MOH are also going out to ETUs in the counties to train local clinical teams. This represent a huge health worker training surge, to supply enough health workers for the new ETUs as they open. The Ebola clinical team training in Liberia pioneered the use of Ebola survivors, both to serve as realistic simulated patients in the mock ETU, but also (on a panel) to sensitize health workers to the fears and experience of Ebola patients within an ETU. To do this, the IMAI Alliance expert patient-trainer coordinator from Uganda, who has trained HIV expert patient to function successfully in helping to train health workers, by realistically simulating patients and providing feedback to health workers.
