Response to COVID-19 pandemic

 MediLabSecure off-line training on preparedness & response to the health emergency from coronavirus sars-cov-2


From the very beginning and even more during the peak COVID-19 epidemic phase, health personnel is on the front line in the management of the epidemic and with different challenges that, in accordance with their role, include a spectrum of responsibilities ranging from surveillance of cases to clinical management and care of patients with well-known associated risks.

In order to strengthen the surveillance and protection capacities of healthcare workers, the MediLabSecure public health working group coordinated by the Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS) has adapted a training course for health staff developed in Italy on Preparedness and Response to the Health Emergency from novel Coronavirus SARS CoV-2 structured into three units:

  • features of SARS CoV-2 emergency;

  • surveillance, identification and management of suspects and cases;

  • information for the health personnel on prevention, identification and control in clinical and community settings

  • The 3 units of the training course are available until June 2021 to all the participants.

    This training has been adapted and contextualized to MediLabSecure participating countries and made available in English and French as an off-line training downloadable package for wide dissemination beyond the network.

    Also, training materials are available for Trainers who are interested in organising training for health staff at national level.

    The topics and the methods adopted make the course suitable also for health staff working in laboratories or other disciplines supporting the management of the epidemic at country level.

    First feebacks on the training were shared during the 'COVID-19 Actions Taken Review' Virtual Workshop: Protecting and empowering COVID-19 frontline health workers: how are we doing it?” jointly organized by MediLabSecure and MediPIET projects on September 23rd 2020.
