This presentation by Laurel Harduar Morano, MPH, PhD, will provide a technical overview of a guidance document developed by the CSTE climate and health syndromic surveillance workgroup. The document covers five specific areas: identifying a climate-related outcome(s) for surveillance, developing a case definition, incorporating environmental data, interpretation and display of results, and engaging with partners.

Presenter

Dr. Laurel Harduar Morano is an occupational and environmental epidemiologist. She received her MPH in biostatistics from Boston University and her doctorate in epidemiology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Harduar Morano has worked with state health departments for over a decade improving surveillance systems, linking environmental and occupational exposures with health outcomes, and analyzing/evaluating linked data sets.

Description

Adverse health effects related to climate change are currently being seen, and these adverse outcomes are likely to increase in the future. Syndromic surveillance systems can provide near-real time information which may be used for situational awareness as communities react to these adverse events. These systems may also provide another source of retrospective information, such as triage notes or diagnostic data at time of visit (e.g. blood pressure), which can also be used for planning and response.

This presentation will provide a technical overview of a guidance document developed by the CSTE climate and health syndromic surveillance workgroup. The document covers five specific areas: identifying a climate-related outcome(s) for surveillance, developing a case definition, incorporating environmental data, interpretation and display of results, and engaging with partners. Each section provides instructions/methodology on how to complete steps in the area and is elucidated by real-world examples.
