Looking at Data in an Outbreak

June 15, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Are you curious about how a hypothesis is developed to implement outbreak control measures? Learn more about descriptive epidemiology and outbreak investigation.

About this Webinar
This session emphasizes descriptive epidemiology using data collected during outbreak investigation. We will be answering what information do we collect during outbreak investigation to build towards developing a hypothesis that we can use to implement control measures or conduct research?

What you’ll learn
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Use the categories of Who, Where, What, When to characterize an outbreak.
  • Manage outbreak information coming such as making a line list.
  • Name the ways that data is organized to address these categories.
  • Describe how to include qualitative data into field investigations.
  • Describe how an epi curve is made and what it can tell us about an outbreak.
