Updated in 2016, P is for Practice is a case study-based training series developed by the North Carolina Institute for Public Health to allow non-epidemiologists to practice basic epidemiology skills and public health concepts, including:

  • Outbreak investigation
  • Risk communication
  • Vulnerable populations
  • Common epidemiological study designs
  • Evidence-based decision making

The course contains realistic scenarios and case studies that you can use to practice basic epidemiology and investigation skills learned in the first two parts of the training series, E is for Epidemiology and I is for Investigation.
