Important formulae for surveillance The formulae described here provide the underpinning to the methods used in this course. The aim of the course is for you to understand how these formulae can be applied to design and analysis of surveillance programs.
Epidemiology notes These notes are useful pre-reading on basic epidemiology, particularly relating to interpretation of relative risks and understanding diagnostic test performance
Notes on scenario tree methodology for risk-based surveillance These notes were used in previous courses, where there was a greater emphasis on the use of scenario trees
Risk-based surveillance manual An updated version of the scenario tree manual
SPS Capacity Building surveillance manual A manual on general principles of animal health surveillance
Survey Toolbox A practical manual on field application of surveillance principles
We look forward to seeing you at the course.
