I is for Investigation


Updated in 2013, the I is for Investigation training series was developed by the North Carolina Institute for Public Health and contains seven modules that use case studies to examine the concepts of an outbreak investigation:

  • Recognizing an Outbreak
  • Study Design
  • Designing Questionnaires
  • Interviewing Techniques
  • Analyzing Data
  • Writing an Outbreak Report
  • Risk and Crisis Communication

This training package is designed to follow the E is for Epidemiology trainings. The final set of trainings is P is for Practice.
