Physician Surveys

Identification of a case of infection with a pathogen transmitted commonly through food depends upon accurate diagnosis by a health care provider and on appropriate laboratory testing. To understand current knowledge, attitudes, and practices of physicians, FoodNet conducts periodic surveys of physicians practicing within the surveillance area.

A brief summary of results from FoodNet surveys in 2009, 2000, and 1996, links to the questionnaires, and a list of publications describing results are included below.
