This course presents the background for nurses' involvement in the control and monitoring of communicable disease. One of the earliest functions of community health nurses was caring for individuals with communicable diseases. This focus later changed to prevention of diseases through early treatment, reporting, and immunization. The goal of this course is to present an overview of some of the emerging infections as well as of those infectious agents (organisms that transfer disease from the environment to the host) that have been known to people for centuries. Also included is a discussion of prevention measures effective in controlling transmission. Finally, the course summarizes disease transmission, immunity, and the characteristics of select communicable diseases. You will be able to utilize the specific principles presented as they pertain to communicable diseases in general and to those diseases reviewed in particular.
