CDC recently released its Ebola-related laboratory guidance, pertinent to and supportive of a laboratory’s preparation and response to patients with potential or confirmed Ebola Virus Disease. CDC and The Joint Commission would like to invite healthcare professionals to participate in a collaborative discussion on this topic as part of its webinar: Your Lab and Ebola: What you need to know from the CDC and The Joint Commission.
