To enhance the surveillance of VPDs.
Public health staff (including epidemiologists, program managers, etc.), health educators, laboratorians, physicians, nurses, physician assistants, and anyone else involved in surveillance and reporting of VPDs.
- Session I: CDC subject matter experts for viral VPDs (mumps, acute flaccid myelitis/polio, varicella, measles, and rotavirus)
- Session II: CDC subject matter experts for bacterial VPDs (meningococcal disease, pertussis, invasive pneumococcal disease, Haemophilus influenzae, and diphtheria)
In this video, Pam Pontones, State Epidemiologist and Director of the Epidemiology Resource Center at the Indiana State Department of Health, shares her insight regarding a series of mumps outbreaks at college campuses in Indiana during 2016. This Indiana example illustrates challenges in the investigation and control of mumps outbreaks. In addition, this video provides information about the epidemiology of mumps as well as the effectiveness of various public health interventions.
This video demonstrates how to correctly collect and transport a buccal swab for the detection of mumps virus RNA. Buccal swabs are the preferred sample for confirmation of mumps infection. Ideally, a buccal swab should be collected 1-3 days after symptom onset but may be collected up to 5 days after symptom onset. The audience for the video is healthcare providers.

This self-study program provides information on case investigation, outbreak control, and disease reporting for vaccine-preventable diseases. The course highlights the most epidemiologically important data to collect and discusses methods of enhancing surveillance and completing case investigations.
