Investigation of Foodborne Illness: A Laboratory Perspective (web-based)

Course Number: WB1418

This basic-level, two and one-half hour instructional module is intended as an overview for individuals working in clinical, public health or environmental laboratories who want to learn more about bacterial, viral, and parasitic causes of foodborne illnesses. The module also includes information on epidemiology, surveillance and laboratory diagnosis of selected food pathogens. Participants will have an opportunity to apply what they have learned by answering questions about case studies that are based on actual outbreak investigations. They will test their comprehension via a post-test.

TARGET AUDIENCE: This program is primarily targeted to clinical laboratory scientists, but public health laboratory scientists may find it of interest as a broad (basic) overview.

ADDITIONAL INFO: The instructional material is delivered in a slide/sound format using a recorded narrator and may be delivered to a small group or used as individual study. When using the material with a group, it will be helpful to designate a facilitator who is able to answer questions about foodborne disease investigation with regard to your institutional procedures. Use of an LCD projector or large screen television monitor is recommended for the group delivery format.
