A set of training materials for professionals working in intervention epidemiology, public health microbiology and infection control and hospital hygiene.
The ECDC coordinates networks for disease prevention & control in the European Union. As one of the mechanisms to align the professional activities between those networks and between the Member States, ECDC aims for consensus on core competencies for each of the relevant disciplines. Those established competencies can further guide training and other capacity building activities.
This is a general forum discussion threat on the role of competencies in capacity building. Discussions on specific disciplines are facilitated in the specific forums.
