Summary

The spread of emerging infectious diseases represents a threat to mankind from either nature or bioterrorism. Given the enormous threats, there are many strategies to prevent and treat the next pandemic. Fundamental to all is containment, and this requires protection of HCWs first exposed to and who treat the patients. SimTunes, LLC was launched by MUSC to develop and sell healthcare worker (HCW) simulation educational materials. This study will investigate an educational product created by SimTunes, called Medical Unit Specialized Simulation Training, that will keep healthcare workers prepared for and safe in the next lethal pandemic. The research will test MUSST's superiority over conventional educational methods and its ability to be used in community hospitals and with a new disease.
