Public Health Ontario’s Infectious Diseases 2015 Workshop is a two-day professional education event focused on building capacity, sharing expertise, and guiding action to prevent and mitigate transmission of infectious diseases.
The symposium is designed for those already working in the field and interested in infectious disease prevention, surveillance and management. The target audience includes public infection prevention and control/communicable disease program managers, public health nurses, public health inspectors, epidemiologists and communications colleagues working in CD/IPAC and surveillance.
An application to CIPHI Ontario Branch for Professional Development Hours (CoPE) will be submitted.
The themes for this workshop focus on surveillance, disease prevention and control, infection prevention and control and communication. These key activities are critical to inform and strengthen our collective responses for effective prevention and mitigation of infectious diseases of public health importance.

The objectives of this workshop are to:
• Discuss planned and existing provincial strategies and frameworks relevant to surveillance
• Strengthen skills and knowledge in infection prevention and control through skill building and collaboration.
