New Resource: CDC Field Epidemiology Manual

Dec 14, 2018 | Kim Rodgers

Yesterday, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention through a partnership with the CDC Foundation and Oxford University Press published The CDC Field Epidemiology Manual. The manual serves as a definitive guide to investigating acute public health events on the ground and in real-time. Assembled and written by experts from CDC as well as other leading public health agencies, The CDC Field Epidemiology Manual offers current and field-tested guidance for every stage of an outbreak investigation—from identification to intervention and other core considerations along the way.

The current version also provides:

  • recommendations and guidance for using new tools in field investigations, including geographic information system data;
  • practical guidance for conducting investigations of major types of problems and in multiple settings, including outbreaks of violence, suicide, and other forms of injury; multinational outbreaks; outbreaks in healthcare and community-care settings; and environmental exposures; and
  • case-study examples of lessons learned from recent field investigations.

The CDC Field Epidemiology Manual is written in an easy-to-read format and enriched with boxes and bulleted points to optimize utility for investigators in the field. It serves as an essential resource for epidemiologists and other health professionals working in local, state, national, and international settings.

The CDC Field Epidemiology Manual is also available in hardcover, paperback, and E-book versions from Oxford University Press, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
