This online, freely available course was developed to improve the investigation, control and prevention of foodborne diseases at the local, state and national levels. The case study illustrates the role of surveillance data in outbreak investigations and the need for systematic evaluation of surveillance systems. Course content is intended for epidemiologists, sanitarians, public health nurses, disease investigators, health officers, physicians and other healthcare providers. The course duration is estimated to last 3-4 hours and participants will learn the steps that might be used to investigate and address a public health problem, be able to describe the epidemiology of infection with Salmonella and more.
