As a public health professional, you strive to keep your community as healthy as possible by advocating practices to prevent the spread of infectious disease. But outbreaks sometimes happen, and when they do, your goal is to stop them as quickly and safely as possible.
Outbreaks vary widely in magnitude and complexity, and diseases can spread through various modes of transmission. Your primary goals in an outbreak investigation are to confirm the outbreak, identify the source of the disease, and implement controls to stop it from spreading.
Who Should Attend?
Public Health Nurses, Registered Environmental Health Specialists (REHSs), Health Officers, and members of the Public Health Workforce who conduct communicable disease outbreak investigations.
|Target Audience:||General Public|
