Course Overview

Outbreak Investigation is one of a series of Internet-based training courses of the Skills Online program, which has now closed. The aim of this program was to provide continuing education opportunities to public health practitioners across Canada. The course has been made available to Peoples-uni to allow the content to be distributed more widely for an international audience.

The purpose of the course is to introduce the basic principles and steps involved in the investigation and management of outbreaks. Learning materials focus on a systematic, methodical approach utilizing epidemiology and statistics and also reinforce the need for communication during an investigation.
