Viral Haemorrhagic Fever

Febrile Traveller Webinar

A webinar on Management of the Febrile Traveller was presented by Dr Alisdair MacConnachie, NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde on 07 October 2014.

The webinar uses case histories to illustrate the common travel associated causes of fever in travellers with particular attention to Viral Haemorrhagic Fever risk assessment.

The learning outcomes of this presentation is to:

  • Understand the common causes of fever in returning travellers
  • appropriately investigate and manage febrile travellers
  • Risk assess travellers of Viral Haemorrhagic Fever and ensure appropriate care of "high risk" patients

Viral Haemorrhagic Fever- The correct order for donning and the safe order for removal and disposal of Personal Protection Equipment.

In order to further support the ongoing Viral Haemorrhagic response in Scotland, NHS Education for Scotland/Health Protection Scotland in partnership with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and NHS Ayrshire and Arran have produced a short film clip (24 minutes) entitled Viral Haemorrhagic Fever- The correct order for donning and the safe order for removal and disposal of Personal Protection Equipment.

This film clip can be accessed below. 

In addition we have produced a slide set based on the content of the film clip and also a short summary sheet reflecting the steps involved in the donning and removal and disposal processes of PPE in relation to VHF.  These can be accessed at the links at the bottom of this webpage.

 

 

The Royal Free hospital has recently produced a training resource for staff using Jupiter hoods as part of their PPE. The videoclip can be found at the weblink detailed below. Many thanks to colleagues for sharing this work with us.
