OHD Outbreak Investigation Templates for Questionnaires, Data Entry, and Data


This pdf document describes how to use questionnaire templates for outbreak investigations. The templates can be used for many types of investigations because investigators can easily adapt the templates to certain events, but they are typically used for outbreaks of gastroenteritis. Ideally they should be used with a FileMaker data entry template “Data Entry.FP5”, but can be used in Access or other similar database programs. FileMaker allows for quick and easy data entry.
