Webinar: Optimizing Infectious Disease Surveillance

August 19, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) will host a webinar to explore the explosion of public health data and the opportunities for resource-constrained public health agencies to engage in cost-efficient and innovative disease surveillance. After the webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate how an integrative surveillance system can be used to improve situational awareness and early detection.
  2. Assess the performance of various data sources, e.g. primary healthcare providers, laboratory data, emergency department chief complaints, and Google Flu Trends, for surveillance.
  3. Evaluate the utility of primary healthcare providers and emergency department chief complaints for predicting influenza-associated hospitalizations in at risk populations.

The webinar recording and slides will be available on the CSTE website shortly after the session has concluded.
