  • Description:
    Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity (COCA) webinar, July 1, 2014.

    In May 2014, the United States recorded the largest number of reported measles cases since 1994 and the number continues to rise. Most cases reported have been acquired in the U.S. and are associated with importations from countries where measles is still common. This highly contagious, acute viral illness spreads quickly in unvaccinated populations once reaching the U.S. The recent measles outbreaks highlight the importance of maintaining high vaccination coverage in the U.S. and ensuring age-appropriate vaccination for international travelers. During this COCA call, clinicians will learn the status of measles in the U.S. and CDC vaccination recommendations and guidelines for patient assessment and management.

    At the conclusion of this session, the participant will be able to accomplish the following:

    • Discuss the current status of measles outbreaks in the U.S.

    • Describe the clinical presentation of measles and the guidelines for patient assessment and management

    • Outline CDC vaccination recommendations for the general public, international travelers, and healthcare professionals

    • Identify CDC measles resources and training materials for clinicians
