Abstract

During all phases of the disaster management cycle, public health surveillance plays a valuable role. Surveillance provides public health officials and stakeholders the information they need to respond to disasters and take action in an appropriate and timely manner. There is a lack of standardized guidance on implementing public health surveillance during domestic disasters. The draft document seeks to fill this need by providing guidance on planning, initiating, modifying, conducting, and evaluating disaster public health surveillance in the U.S. In this session, we plan to engage the audience to receive feedback on the draft document proposal.
