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:
- Demonstrate how an integrative surveillance system can be used to improve situational awareness and early detection.
- Assess the performance of various data sources, e.g. primary healthcare providers, laboratory data, emergency department chief complaints, and Google Flu Trends, for surveillance.
- 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.
