While it’s common knowledge that highly infectious diseases pose a hazard to healthcare workers – the 2014-2015 Ebola outbreak highlighted the risks – there is little information available about the impact on allied health and non-healthcare workers who also encounter these risks.
NFDA is collaborating with The Biosafety and Infectious Disease Training Initiative (BIDTI), a consortium of five universities funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, as they conduct a gap analysis survey to gather specific data about working with infectious pathogens specifically in the death care industry.
Please take a moment to participate in the survey before it closes on August 6. It will take approximately 15 minutes and is completely voluntary. Your answers are completely anonymous and will be aggregated. Your responses to this brief survey will help inform the development of targeted trainings that can make you more prepared in your work environment and will also keep your family, colleagues, and community safer in the future.
