Identify your contagious illness.

**PLEASE READ BEFORE BEGINNING! I ONLY need questions #3 and #7 done. I will do the rest. I am including in the files the work I have already done on this assignment to help with answering the two questions. Use the information from my work to help. Make sure when answering #7 that you read my answer to question 4 so you know what type of surveillance system I am chosing to use in this scenario. Also, please use the website links my professor has included in her instructions. I am also attaching all the pages from the chapter of the book that you may use. If you need to cite the book, use it (Landesman et al., 2021) I will do the references at the end, so no need to do any references unless you use a source that is not included in the instructions. **
PROFESSOR INSTRUCTIONS
There were a lot of “rumors” and facts related to COVID-19 regarding treatment and what was happening (and continues to happen) in the rest of the world. Read Chapter 5 — it discusses surveillance, rumors, and disaster information systems. I am sharing with you again the GIS map link:
https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6
Appendix BB has useful internet references and resources. I would like you to look through some of those resources. I have shared a link to the CDC on this week’s page and their surveillance information:
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/covid-data/covidview/index.html
Watch the following video on surveillance:

Your Discussion Scenario:
Select any contagious illness.
Now, imagine you were working for your local health department and you need to set up surveillance for a local elementary school which has approximately 500 students.
1. Identify your contagious illness. DO NOT DO!
2. Describe the factors that make it contagious and describe the symptoms. DO NOT DO!
3. What would you want to consider when thinking about setting up your surveillance system? ANSWER THIS QUESTION
4. Which surveillance system would be best to use — passive, active, rumor, syndromic, and sentinel. DO NOT DO!
5. Would you use GIS to help? DO NOT DO!
6. Who are your risk groups? DO NOT DO!
7. How would you in theory set it up, what would you look for? (This is your implementation plan). ANSWER THIS QUESTION
8. How will you communicate the presence of this illness in the school to parents? DO NOT DO!
9. What will be included in this communication? – DO NOT DO!
Be creative!
Please use your text, the CDC website and any other information relating to public health surveillance. This is more of a theory and what would be “ideal”.
Since many of you have children in school, you may have experience in how your child’s school handled surveillance for a contagious illness.

Explain which dissemination strategies you would be least inclined to use and explain why.

As your EBP skills grow, you may be called upon to share your expertise with others. While EBP practice is often conducted with unique outcomes in mind, EBP practitioners who share their results can both add to the general body of knowledge and serve as an advocate for the application of EBP.
In this Discussion, you will explore strategies for disseminating EBP within your organization, community, or industry. Review the Resources and reflect on the various strategies presented throughout the course that may be helpful in disseminating effective and widely cited EBP.
This may include: unit-level or organizational-level presentations, poster presentations, and podium presentations at organizational, local, regional, state, and national levels, as well as publication in peer-reviewed journals.
Reflect on which type of dissemination strategy you might use to communicate EBP. Post at least two dissemination strategies you would be most inclined to use and explain why. Explain which dissemination strategies you would be least inclined to use and explain why. Identify at least two barriers you might encounter when using the dissemination strategies you are most inclined to use. Be specific and provide examples. Explain how you might overcome the barriers you identified.

How will an MPH degree affect or enhance your career aspirations and goals?

a) Why you are interested in pursuing the MPH degree at the University of Southern California?
