Building a Public Health Community of Practice – A Biosurveillance Resource Compendium (CD)

Description:

Building a Public Health Community of Practice – A Biosurveillance Resource Compendium is a CD toolkit intended to help public health agencies implement an effective, comprehensive biosurveillance program. Providing approximately 40 resources, the CD includes a series of articles on implementing biosurveillance initiatives, materials defining and discussing the development of a public health community of practice, specific examples of real-world tools and resources that have proven beneficial in North Texas (including system response protocols), and a research report on biosurveillance system efficacy. The CD can help public health agencies strengthen partnerships with stakeholders at the federal, state and local levels and with the medical community, law enforcement, first responders, and schools; it details how Tarrant County Public Health accomplished those goals and shares tools that were instrumental to the agency's success.
