About the Course
The arrival of the SARS-CoV-2 Pandemic strain of the Coronavirus has highlighted the importance of emergency preparedness, forward planning, and robust outbreak management systems and infrastructure. The importance of the normally, not in the news, Communicable Disease Control expertise and collaborative working with Public Health and other interrelated agencies has come to the forefront. Prevention is the best way forward and this is what we should excel at.
The course will give participants a grounding in the core principles of health protection and is a useful building block towards achieving competency in health protection on call. The content will cover all the Faculty of Public Health competencies, including the DFPH (Diplomate exam) and will serve as a refresher and a primer for new practitioners (Consultant to Health Protection Practitioners).
Dr Bharat Pankhania, Senior Clinical Lecturer, University of Exeter Medical School with contributions from expert guest speakers.
