Public Health Emergency Law 3.0 &
Forensic Epidemiology 3.0 Training Curricula
The CDC Public Health Law Program of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the Public Health Emergency Law 3.0 and Forensic Epidemiology 3.0 training curricula in 2008. These self-contained training packages were developed for use in any jurisdiction in the United States.
Public Health Emergency Law 3.0 is targeted at public health practitioners and emergency management professionals to improve their understanding of the role of law in public health emergency response. Materials include three lecture units with PowerPoint slides, an interactive case study, and a Course Manager's Guide. Notes for instructors and other supplemental information are also included.
Forensic Epidemiology 3.0 is designed to help public health and law enforcement agencies strengthen their coordinated response to pandemic influenza and similar prevention disease outbreaks. Materials include a new CDC-developed case study on pandemic influenza as well as scenarios and training materials from other developers. The course also contains the complete training resources developed for Forensic Epidemiology 1.0 focused on improving coordinated public health-law enforcement investigation of suspected bioterrorist events.
