Bioterrorism Surveillance and Epidemiologic Response Plan


The Bioterrorism Training and Emergency Preparedness Curriculum was developed to educate students and the public on information regarding bioterrorism preparedness and emergency response.

This module provides information on early detection of a bioterrorism event focusing on sensitivity to unusual clusters of disease syndromes, in addition to traditional disease reporting. Review of the use of syndromic surveillance systems integrates data from a variety of sources to alert public health officials to potential outbreaks prior to the establishment of a diagnosis. The investigation of any disease outbreak follows several basic steps.Post-event surveillance includes systems to monitor for the development of new cases, case outcomes, and adverse events related to treatment and prophylaxis. Also covered is the role of Laboratory Response Network to respond to bioterrorism.
