Ebola film aims to educate medical community
The film, "E-bola: On the Trail of Epidemic," combines scientifically accurate information and dramatic filmmaking to offer an educational experience for both the medical community and the public at large.
Consulcesi Club said the film aims to be able to help in the training and education of medical professionals and help them be able to obtain continuing medical education (CME) credits.
The National Hospital for Infectious Diseases, the University of Sapienza and the Italian Ministry of Health said the film is scientifically accurate.
There is additional material combined with the film that is adequate to be able to count as a course for CME credits from the National Agency for Regional Health Services.
