This training will serve as a refresher on outbreak investigations for public health practitioners with some prior experience. This is an opportunity to problem-solve and learn from peers across disciplines. The session will include an overview on outbreak investigations, a guided case study in small interdisciplinary teams, and a large group synthesis. This training will integrate a quality improvement (QI) approach to outbreak investigations.
