Florida ILINet Training and Orientation

This presentation is designed as an introduction to the Florida Department of Health's influenza surveillance systems, and especially Florida's Outpatient Influenza-like Illness Surveillance Network (ILINet) sentinel provider network.  The presentation includes basic information on influenza epidemiology, and follows with a summary of the surveillance systems used to track influenza activity, morbidity, and mortality in Florida.  An explanation of Florida's ILINet surveillance system shows how influenza-like illness (ILI) data and influenza specimens are collected, and outlines the benefits of the program for the provider and the public.

The ILINet Training is intended for physicians and nurses who are currently enrolled in the program or who are interested in joining.  The presentation takes about an hour, and can be used for 1 hour of CEU credit.  The program uses Adobe Presenter but should not require you to download any materials or additional software.
