Navigating a Foodborne Outbreak: Preparation for Interprofessional Practice is a self-paced, interactive learning module that demonstrates the importance of interprofessional practice among health professionals to improve and protect population health in the context of a foodborne outbreak.

The module will take approximately 90 minutes to two hours to complete. Learners may complete it in one session, or pause and return to the module to finish in multiple sessions. The module is divided into three chapters--one set in an outpatient clinic, one at a local public health department, and one at a multidisciplinary meeting after the outbreak has resolved. The scenario is based on a multi-state foodborne outbreak that occurred in 2015-16. Subject matter experts from state and local public health departments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), including one who was involved in the S. Poona outbreak, provided guidance for the project.

This module was developed collaboratively by the four national associations that comprise the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Academic Partnerships to Improve Health (APIH) initiative with expertise, guidance, and funding provided by CDC. The APIH associations are:

  • American Association of Colleges of Nursing
  • Association for Prevention Teaching and Research
  • Association of American Medical Colleges
  • Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health

Funding for this module was made possible by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (cooperative agreement numbers NU36OE000004, NU36OE000002, NU36OE000003,NU36OE000005 ), Centers for Surveillance, Epidemiology and Laboratory Services.
