CIFOR Guidelines Development

  • Comprehensive, consensus-based guidelines
  • Developed by a workgroup with representatives from state, local, and federal level as well as all disciplines
  • Based on existing guidelines and practices
  • Released in 2009
slide4

CIFOR Guidelines Product

  • Description of major functions in outbreak response
  • Specific practices to improve outbreak response
  • Performance indicators to determine effectiveness of activities
  • Comprehensive but not stand-alone
  • Does not provide instructions for implementing any particular recommendation
slide5

CIFOR Guidelines Toolkit

A process and supporting materials to help agencies and jurisdictions:

  • Better understand their current outbreak response activities
  • Become more familiar with the CIFOR Guidelinesand recommended practices
  • Identify appropriate activities to improve performance
  • Make plans to implement those activities
slide6

CIFOR Toolkit Goals

  • To identify CIFOR recommendations most appropriate for your agency or jurisdiction
  • To prioritize those recommendations to not overwhelm resources
  • To designate a lead person to take responsibility for implementing each recommendation
  • To agree on an action plan and timeline to increase the likelihood that changes will occur
slide7

Relationships

  • Necessary resources
  • Communications
  • Control of

source at implicated

facility

  • Food recall
  • Control of secondary spread
  • Notification/

complaint systems

  • Pathogen-specific surveillance
  • Initial steps
  • Epidemiology investigation
  • Environmental health investigation
  • Laboratory investigation

Toolkit Tracks and Focus Areas

Planning and Preparation

Surveillance and Outbreak Detection

Control Measures

Investigation of Clusters and Outbreaks

CIFOR Toolkit Steps

Preparation: select participants, assemble supporting documents, prioritize Focus Areas

Then:

  • Describe current activities/procedures in each Focus Area and identify areas for improvement
  • Prioritize CIFOR recommendations that address these targets
  • Outline steps to implement high priority CIFOR recommendations
slide10

Implementation: State-based trainings

  • CSTE funded trainings in
  • 22 sites
  • 17 states:

AK, AR, CT, DE, FL, IA, ID, IL, KS, KY, ME, MI, NV, ND, PA, WA, WV

  • 2 county-based areas:

Knox County (TN), Cuyahoga County (OH)

  • 3 urban areas:

Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Milwaukee

slide11

Implementation: State-based trainings

  • Each site conducted a multidisciplinary training using the Toolkit to identify recommendations from the Guidelines to implement
  • Evaluation form and summary report required upon completion of training
  • Trainings took place starting Spring 2011
slide13

State-based trainings:Type of training

  • All trainings:
    • Used the Guidelines & Toolkit

    • Multiple-day training (FL, IA, MI, NV)
    • Regional trainings (AR, Cuyahoga County, DE, PA, WA, WV)
slide14

State-based trainings: Focus areas completed

  • Sites completed between 3 and 12 focus areas
  • Most commonly completed focus areas:
    • 1 – Relationships
    • 2 – Communications
    • 7 – Epidemiology investigations
    • 3 – Necessary resources
    • 6 – Initial steps
slide15

State-based trainings: Common themes

  • Many sites reported similar improvements to be made:
    • Better communication
    • Better coordination
    • More training
    • More post-outbreak debriefs/ after-action reports
    • Use standardized investigation/interview/other forms
    • Utilize written protocols (create if necessary)
slide16

State-based trainings: Common themes

  • Many sites reported similar Guidelines recommendations to be implemented:
    • Chapter 3 – Planning & Preparation
      • 3.1 – Agency roles
      • 3.2.3.3 – Agency-specific response protocol & other resources
      • 3.2.3.4 – Training for the team
      • 3.6.2.2 – Communication among the agencies & units of the outbreak control team
    • Chapter 5 – Investigation of Clusters & Outbreaks
      • 5.1.2.5 – Standardized data collection forms
      • 5.2.5 – Coordinate investigation activities
    • Chapter 6 – Control Measures
      • 6.6 – Debriefing
slide17

State-based trainings: What was learned

  • “We consider ourselves to be ahead of the curve, but staff roles need to be better defined in an outbreak investigation.”
  • “Utilizing the Toolkit to guide a review of current practices was very valuable. We learned that we are doing a lot of things right but also learned that standardization of foodborne outbreak detection & response practices statewide would be helpful & could be improved.”
slide18

State-based trainings: What was learned (continued)

  • “Enabling all of the jurisdictions to send representatives from multiple disciplines allowed for excellent networking opportunities & face-to-face discussions. All participants learned a lot… local health jurisdictions have developed various strategies to enhance outbreak response.”
  • “Having the opportunity to get together & talk about current practices & needed improvements was very helpful.”
slide19

State-based trainings: Next steps

  • Follow-up with sites that conducted trainings
    • Progress on identified action items
    • Impact of training on outbreak response
