Data Quality Monitoring and Evaluation of Public Health Surveillance in European Countries, 2012

Description: 

This presentation will highlight the work accomplished by the Surveillance System Quality Working Group convened by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) in their efforts to develop an electronic manual for monitoring data quality and evaluations for public health surveillance systems. The aim of this project was to support processes for monitoring data quality and evaluation of surveillance systems in EU countries so as to provide accurate and timely information for decision making. Working group members Isabelle Devaux, Scott McNabb, and Bruno Ciancio will discuss the project development and the end result of an e-manual, resource-library, and a novel approach to monitoring and evaluation of surveillance system quality. The presentation will be followed by a 15-20 minute question period.
