Navigating a Foodborne Outbreak

Navigating a Foodborne Outbreak: Preparation for Interprofessional Practice is a self-paced, interactive, online teaching module that demonstrates the importance of interprofessional practice among health professionals to improve and protect population health. The case scenario of the module is a fictional foodborne illness based on the 2015-2016 multi-state outbreak of Salmonella Poona associated with cucumbers. »

The module is divided into three chapters

  1. An outpatient clinic
  2. Local public health department
  3. Multidisciplinary meeting after the outbreak has resolved.

The module includes pre-module assessment, case scenario videos, supporting resources that can be saved to a personal library, post-module assessment, and a certificate of completion.


The overarching competency for the module is to “describe how professionals in health and other fields can collaborate and integrate clinical care and public health interventions to optimize population health" (Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice Competency RR-10). Three sub-competencies and 28 learning objectives frame the module content.

Target Audience

While the module specifically targets medical, nursing (baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral level), and public health (baccalaureate and master’s level) students, it may also be relevant to other health professionals at various stages of their training.
