Issue Number: Council II 025


Report: Interdisciplinary Foodborne Illness Training Committee (IFITC)

Issue you would like the Conference to consider

The 2012-2014 Interdisciplinary Foodborne Illness Training Committee seeks the Council's acknowledgement of its report.

Public Health Significance

The Interdisciplinary Foodborne Illness Training Committee has been tasked with:

1. Cataloging and to continue tracking the progress of prominent disease training programs currently developed; and

2. Identifying essential educational content of foodborne disease outbreak training programs.

The Committee believes that it has completed the assigned charges set by the Conference.

It is our belief that the need for foodborne illness training is important, and given that different jurisdictions do not use a consistent approach to foodborne disease investigations, the gathering of this information will make it possible for Health Agencies, Universities, Industry and other non-governmental organizations (NGO's) to have access to a database that will provide them with complete training materials that could act as a template for developing an effective Foodborne Illness training program.

Foodborne Illnesses are still occurring and, given the CDC data, it is important that the information provided in the FSMA 205C (1) A 4/29/2013 (Attached) be made accessible to all interested in foodborne illnesses training. The Committee does believe that improved training opportunities should increase awareness as well as promote the importance of Foodborne Illness Investigations.

Recommended Solution: The Conference recommends...

1. Acknowledgement of the report of the Interdisciplinary Foodborne Illness Training Committee.

2. Thanking the Committee members for their work and dedication for completing the charges.
