(Medical University of South Carolina) Online training developed at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) increased the knowledge of health care workers about effective prevention of Ebola up to 19 percent and reduced critical errors to 2.3 percent in a small MUSC cohort. These findings, published in Health Security, suggest that the program could improve protection of health care workers from Ebola and, because it will be easily accessible via the Internet, could be especially useful in low-resource settings.
