Surveillance and control of occupational-associated zoonoses are important public health priorities for Colorado and other agricultural states. The Colorado Integrated Food Safety Center of Excellence systematically reviewed existing evidence and established an expert advisory panel to improve occupational-associated zoonoses surveillance in Colorado. The fields were approved by an expert working group and were integrated into Colorado’s Electronic Disease Reporting System (CEDRS) for enteric pathogens in March 2017.
The Colorado CoE has evaluated the quality and completeness of the new fields. Download the presentations:
