Objectif : Développer un programme de formation d’urgence sur les équipements de protection individuelle (EPI) pour les travailleurs de la santé générale qui pourraient être menacés par la maladie à virus Corona 2019 (COVID-19) et évaluer l’effet du programme

Objective:  To develop an emergency training program of personal protective equipment (PPE) for general healthcare workers (HCWs) who may be under the threat of Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and evaluate the effect of the program. Methods:  A three-stage training program was designed. The complete clinical workflow together with infectious disease ward was simulated. To verify the effect of the program, an experimental training with pre- and post-test was conducted before large-scale training. Results:  Post-test scores were significantly improved when compared with the pre-test scores. Among all PPE, N95 respirator and protective coverall needed training most. Meanwhile, “proficiency level” and “mutual check & help” also needed to be strengthened as independent scoring points. Conclusion:  This training program significantly improved the performances of participants. It may therefore be applied for general HCWs on a larger scale.
