Report: Interdisciplinary Foodborne Illness Training Committee (IFITC)
Issue you would like the Conference to consider
The 2014-2016 Interdisciplinary Foodborne Illness Training Committee (IFITC) seeks the Council's acknowledgement of its report.
Public Health Significance
The Interdisciplinary Foodborne Illness Training Committee has been tasked with:
- Use the Crosswalk submitted in the 2012-2014 Committee report to identify current gaps in the training for Program Standard #5 as established by Council to Improve Foodborne Outbreak Response (CIFOR) and the Partnership for Food Protection as best practices for foodborne illness investigation.
- Identify new training programs as they relate to the Crosswalk and Standard 5.
- Work within the Conference process to post the Crosswalk document from the 2012-2014 Committee to the CFP Website.
- Report back to the 2016 biennial meeting a revised Crosswalk document for foodborne illness investigation.
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 illness investigations, the gathering and sharing of this information will make it possible for health agencies, universities, industry and other non-governmental organizations to determine if the training materials they are using matches the requirements of Standard 5.
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.
