Update on Mumps 2014 for the College Health Professional

Fees Instructions for Obtaining Credit

Program Information


While mumps is no longer a common illness in the U.S. (due to current vaccination strategies), there continue to be outbreaks, particularly when individuals are in crowded conditions, such as occurs in college dormitory settings. Last year, at least four universities reported outbreaks, with over 250 cases at one Midwestern school. Clinicians meet challenges making this diagnosis in individuals who have previously been vaccinated. Universities experience public health challenges in controlling these outbreaks.

Intended Audience

  • Administrators
  • Physicians and Physician Assistants
  • Nurses and Nurse Practitioners
  • Health Educators
  • Students

Learning Objectives

The participants should be able to:

  1. Define current U.S. epidemiology of mumps.
  2. Define clinical diagnostic criteria for mumps.
  3. Define available lab tests to confirm a diagnosis of mumps.
  4. List steps to take on campus to educate the community and limit the spread of the disease.
