The NSSP Community of Practice


The National Syndromic Surveillance Program Community of Practice (NSSP CoP) membership includes CDC-funded grant recipients, non-funded states and jurisdictions that contribute data to the BioSense Platform, public health practitioners who use local syndromic surveillance systems, CDC programs, other federal agencies, partner organizations, hospitals, healthcare professionals, and academic institutions to advance the science and practice of syndromic surveillance. While BioSense addresses SyS technology, the NSSP CoP is the social framework for public health workers on the front lines of public health surveillance and emergency preparedness.


Why Participate?

The NSSP CoP is a way to engage with peers—whether by asking or answering questions posed on forums, attending webinars and training events, or sharing ideas and success stories. Participation in the NSSP CoP will help practitioners stay abreast of advances in the science and practice of syndromic surveillance. The NSSP CoP facilitates learning, knowledge sharing, and problem solving among practitioners who want to integrate syndromic surveillance more fully into daily practice and use its inherent early-warning capabilities to complement ongoing public health surveillance.


The NSSP CoP provides numerous benefits:

  • access to experts across the nation—including CDC and syndromic surveillance grantees, partners, and stakeholders;
  • increased capacity to conduct syndromic surveillance through enhanced coordination across jurisdictions and organizations;
  • versatile forums for solving problems and sharing solutions;
  • established mechanism for receiving technical assistance;
  • more efficient use of resources through collaborative efforts;
  • peer-to-peer mentoring;
  • access to a curated repository of syndromic surveillance tools and resources;
  • shared success stories and lessons learned;
  • and a shared professional identity.
