Task 3: Group Presentation (Power point presentation)
Working in PAIRS develop a 20 minute presentation that critically analyses and discusses an outbreak of an infectious disease within a specific population within a geographical area (regional or national) and the contribution of epidemiology towards public health strategies to promote population health.
Your presentation will: • Describe the organism responsible for the disease outbreak and patterns of disease transmission during the outbreak. • Analyse and discuss the characteristics of the chosen population that contributed towards the occurrence of the outbreak. • Analyse and discuss relevant epidemiological data outlining the course of the outbreak in your selected population • Discuss the role of a public health surveillance system and the surveillance strategies associated with your selected disease to monitor and control the outbreak. • Critically analyse and discuss the relationship between research and health interventions. Using the infectious disease responsible for the outbreak, show how research has improved public health outcomes for this infectious disease.

Use relevant epidemiological and statistical data (tables and graphs) to support your analysis and discussions.
Your presentation must be supported by credible, current scholarly literature which must be evident through use of citations and demonstration of knowledge of the topic area.
Learning outcomes 1. Critically analyse the foundations of epidemiological knowledge and the scope of modern health related epidemiology and statistical methods relevant to the practice of infection risk management. 2. Critically analyse the requirements of a surveillance programme and its value in monitoring and preventing healthcare associated infection. 3. Use epidemiological principles and process to critically analyse health related epidemiology research findings to inform and improve health related practice and public health.
