Chapter 13 The Massive Waterborne Outbreak of Cryptosporidium Infections, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 1993
Early on in this investigation, it was clear that there was an emerging public health problem because the health department was receiving calls from several sources. So if they already knew they had a problem, then how did performing active surveillance by calling emergency departments and labs around the region to determine diarrhea-related illness numbers help the health dept. investigators?
*Side note from professor*
The key to these discussions is to ensure you briefly answer questions specific to the case study, because everyone will do this. The real meat from this discussion will come from going to the Kaplan University Library and seeking out other examples of outbreaks or other publications associated with the disease that we are talking about. (CDC, WHO, other government publications and peer reviewed journals from reputable sites)
For example, with hepatitis B you could look at similar hep b outbreaks in a hospital setting and review how this situation was handled. For measles, you can look into the anti-vaxxer movement and explore how public health officials have tackled this issue. We can then compare and contrast. Please consider this as we move forward
From the mandatory reading “Outbreak Investigations around the world 2010 Dworkin Chapter 13” this may be helpful and you could build upon this:
According to Dworkin (2010), lab surveillance: determines outbreak trends, characterizes the illness in healthy populations and in immunocompromised and other special populations, and establishes case definitions, collection, and storage of serologic and other specimens for future studies.
In addition, according to Dworkin (2010), surveillance of the emergency room was helpful during the early stages of the outbreak investigation, to facilitate case findings, clinical characterization, and case definition generation.
The professor is very anal about filler to get the required amount of words and just wants information straight to the point. He also very anal about the word count and does physically count the words to make sure that you fulfilled the requirement.
