Discussion: Writing an Outbreak Investigation Report

  • One of the developments in the past decade is that the concept of 'an outbreak investigation report' is stretching and evolves.

    With the use of internet, social media, rapid alert systems, the different target audiences of outbreak investigations require different formats.

    Even when within 2 weeks a solid preliminary outbreak report is published in a public health journal, including hypotheses, methods, results and conclusions, then this may still be too late for some target groups of 'those who need to know'.

    Websites of national and international public health institutes and agencies are being scanned daily by public health professionals in search of pieces of evidence that they can use in their daily professional decisions. More and more we seem to move to 'incremental online outbreak reports', where almost daily updated threat assessments aim to give the latest of knowledge and evidence in terms of risk groups and risk factors.

    Epidemiologists therefore also need to adapt their way of working in terms of scientific output to address this evolving demand of reliable, sound, objective and structured information about ongoing outbreaks
