Epi-Ready Team Training: Foodborne Illness Response Strategies

The Epi-Ready course is a team-based training for public health professionals involved in foodborne disease outbreak investigations. Coordinated by the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) and funded by CDC, it is a two day, face-to-face training. Epi-Ready focuses on how to efficiently and effectively respond to a foodborne disease outbreak through a "team-based” approach, bringing together the disciplines involved in the investigation of these outbreaks (i.e., environmental health specialists/sanitarian, epidemiologists, laboratorians, and public health nurses). CSTE worked with consultant Jeanette Stehr-Green to revise the course content to reflect advances in outbreak response and approaches to public health training since the creation of the original content in 2003. The newly-revised content includes an updated curriculum, a modified schedule, more interactive material for the participants, and updated instructor materials.
