International Night is one of the highlights of the annual Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) conference. It provides a unique forum where FETP residents can formally present how their work helps prevent, detect, and respond to communicable and non-communicable diseases and other health threats. It also gives residents an opportunity to defend their research methodology before a scientific council of peers, and compete to receive the highest FETP honor – The William H. Foege Award for Outstanding Scientific Presentation. International Night creates an environment where FETP residents and EIS officers can meet face-to-face, learn from each other and strengthen a global network that can be called upon to address global health challenges. Since 1980, through the FETP platform, CDC has worked with ministries of health and other partners to strengthen public health capacity by training over 2,800 “disease detectives” from 70 countries. 80% of FETP graduates continue to work in their home countries. With the continued threat and burden of infectious diseases, FETPs also play a significant role in assisting countries in meeting their core capacity requirements for surveillance and response under the International Health Regulations (IHR, 2005).
Most people come to work to do a good job. However there are frequently obstacles that can overwhelm even the best worker. It's tempting to jump to a solution, or to give up and conclude 'it will always be this way.' This session will introduce you to SMDP's most popular tool, and you will learn how to: -Use a methodical approach to analyze a performance problem -Create a cause/effect diagram to determine the reasons for a problem -Prioritize reasons before designing a solution
