Contact Tracing is a critical element of public health and healthcare epidemiology and in stopping infectious disease transmission. While contact tracing may labor-intensive, the process is useful to both healthcare and public health professionals, especially during pandemics such as COVID-19. This CDC toolkit provides a helpful overview of the proper steps to conducting contact tracing.
Crisis and Emergency Risk Communication
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Crisis and Emergency Risk Communication (CERC) program provides trainings, tools, and resources to help health communicators, emergency responders, and leaders of organizations communicate effectively during emergencies. This program can be used as a standalone for internal staff training, but also as a model curriculum for learning best practices in healthcare communication during pandemics, outbreaks, or other serious adverse events.
