Evaluation of the Council to Improve Foodborne Outbreak Response (CIFOR) Guidelines for foodborne disease outbreak response and associated toolkit by Jeanne S Ringel( )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Foodborne disease is a significant public health problem. Estimates from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicate that, in 2011, approximately one in six individuals in the United States was affected by a foodborne disease, resulting in 127,839 hospitalizations and roughly 3,000 deaths (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2011; Scallan et al., 2011). With reducing the burden of foodborne disease among its primary goals, CIFOR developed the Guidelines for Foodborne Outbreak Response (2009) and a companion Toolkit (2011) to facilitate improvements in foodborne disease outbreak detection and response at the state and local levels. The objective of this study is to assess the distribution and use of the CIFOR Guidelines and Toolkit to determine whether and to what extent they are reaching their intended users and achieving their intended goals. Findings from this evaluation provide important information about how the dissemination, content, and structure of the Guidelines and Toolkit can be changed to facilitate their use and further improve foodborne outbreak response

State injury indicators report : 2005 data( Book )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)'s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) is pleased to provide this fifth edition of the "State Injury Indicators Report" featuring 2006 data. We hope state public health officials and others will find the surveillance data presented in this report useful in making decisions about prevention efforts to reduce the burden of injury in the United States. The methods used to prepare these data are consistent with those used in previous cycles of injury indicator data collection. They are based on recommendations presented in the "Consensus Recommendations for Using Hospital Discharge Data for Injury Surveillance" and from the National Public Health Surveillance System indicators developed by the Safe States Alliance (formerly known as the State and Territorial Injury Prevention Directors Association) and the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists. With partner feedback and updated consensus recommendations, CDC continuously modifies the instructions and methods used to prepare these data. The 2006 data collection cycle had no changes from the 2005 cycle. Thirty-six states submitted data either as a part of CDC Program Announcement 05027 or voluntarily. As more states and U.S. territories participate in this surveillance effort, a broader picture of the burden of injuries can be presented and priorities for prevention can be targeted. NCIPC looks forward to continuing its work with partners to advance and improve injury surveillance using state-based data on fatal and nonfatal injuries

Compendium of measures to prevent disease associated with animals in public settings, 2011( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Certain venues encourage or permit the public to be in contact with animals, resulting in millions of human-animal interactions each year. These settings include county or state fairs, petting zoos, animal swap meets, pet stores, feed stores, zoologic institutions, circuses, carnivals, educational farms, livestock-birthing exhibits, educational exhibits at schools and child-care facilities, and wildlife photo opportunities. Although human-animal contact has many benefits, human health problems are associated with these settings, including infectious diseases, exposure to rabies, and injuries. Infectious disease outbreaks have been caused by Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonella species, Cryptosporidium species, Coxiella burnetii, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, ringworm, and other pathogens. Such outbreaks have substantial medical, public health, legal, and economic effects. This report provides recommendations for public health officials, veterinarians, animal venue staff members, animal exhibitors, visitors to animal venues, physicians, and others concerned with minimizing risks associated with animals in public settings. The recommendation to wash hands is the most important for reducing the risk for disease transmission associated with animals in public settings. Other important recommendations are that venues prohibit food in animal areas and include transition areas between animal areas and nonanimal areas, visitors receive information about disease risk and prevention procedures, and animals be properly cared for and managed. These updated 2011 guidelines provide new information on the risks associated with amphibians and with animals in day camp settings, as well as the protective role of zoonotic disease education."--Page 1

"This report provides recommendations for public health officials, veterinarians, animal venue staff, animal exhibitors, visitors to animal venues, physicians, and others concerned with minimizing risks associated with animals in public settings. The recommendation to wash hands is the single most important prevention step for reducing the risk for disease transmission. Other critical recommendations are that venues not allow food in animal areas, venues include transition areas between animal areas and nonanimal areas, visitors be educated about disease risk and prevention procedures, and animals be properly cared for and managed."--Page 1

Guidelines for minimum and comprehensive state-based public health activities in occupational safety and health( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This document provides valuable guidance for developing a range of state-based public health programs occupational illness and injury prevention. It is an update of a 1995 publication and was prepared by members of the Occupational Health Surveillance Workgroup of the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE). The minimum recommended state-level approaches in the Guidelines describe public health activities in occupational injury and illness prevention that can be performed at a minimal cost using existing staff and data. The comprehensive state-level approaches suggest areas for expansion as resources become available. Occupational injuries and illnesses are preventable. The first step to prevention is to know the how, why and when of the health condition. The Guidelines highlight the fundamental importance of public health surveillance data or, to use the term from Institute of Medicine, "assessment" as one of the three core functions of public health practice. State health departments have been practicing disease surveillance for the past 100 years. It is something we do well. Strong, state-based public health surveillance systems for occupational diseases and injuries are needed to provide critical data not available in national data systems. Advances in available electronic health data systems in the past ten years have greatly expanded opportunities for state-based occupational health surveillance activities. In some ways occupational injuries and illnesses are easier to address than other preventable conditions because often the risks can be controlled through better engineering design rather than requiring individual behavior change. However, like other aspects of public health, there can be complex social interplay that may impede effective prevention. The second section, "policy development," describes minimum and comprehensive activities to address and mobilize social forces to promote occupational safety and health. Finally, in accord with the third core function of public health - "assurance"--The Guidelines describe a range of state-level approaches to occupational injury and illness prevention, many of which are now possible because of the near universal accessibility of information and communications tools through the Internet. Furthermore, successful prevention strategies that have been developed by a core group of state programs for over 10 years can readily be shared with all states."--NIOSHTIC-2
Indicators for occupational health surveillance( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Each year, millions of the estimated 140 million U.S. workers are injured on the job or become ill from exposure to hazards at work. These work-related injuries and illnesses result in substantial human and economic costs for workers, employers, and society; estimated direct and indirect costs of work-related injuries and illnesses are approximately $170 billion annually. In 1998, the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) and CDC's National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) convened a work group that identified priority occupational health conditions to be placed under surveillance, addressed cross-cutting surveillance concerns, and made recommendations regarding the role of states in a comprehensive nationwide surveillance system for work-related disease, injuries, and hazards. CSTE recommendations led to the generation of 19 occupational health indicators (OHIs) and one Employment Demographic Profile, which were developed during 2001-2003. The OHIs complement other guidelines for state-based occupational health surveillance to address overall state and national goals to improve public health. These OHIs are intended to help states build occupational health capacity by providing them with tools to collect and generate important, basic information concerning the occupational health status of the state population and to identify areas in which to focus prevention efforts. In 2005, CSTE released a report compiling OHI data from 13 states. NIOSH provides funding for the OHIs because they are now a required component of state-based cooperative agreements for occupational health surveillance. This report introduces the OHIs and describes CSTE's approach to developing this new occupational health surveillance tool."--Page 1

Use of workers' compensation data for occupational safety and health : proceedings from June 2012 workshop( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose for the June 2012 Use of Workers' Compensation Data for Occupational Safety and Health Workshop was to explore ways in which workers' compensation information can be used for public health research and surveillance. Thirty-five poster and platform presentations described studies that utilized workers' compensation information while exploring limitations of these resources. The workshop proceedings contain summary articles for the presentations plus notes from the discussion groups for the 6 white papers that were drafted for the workshop. The workshop was co-sponsored by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions (IAIABC), National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI), National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries, Safety and Health Assessment for Research and Prevention (SHARP) program
