NSSP Community of Practice Steering Committee
An established organizational structure for the NSSP Community of Practice (NSSP CoP) will set a foundation for strategic action and ensure feasibility and alignment of NSSP CoP activities with stakeholder priorities. The NSSP CoP Steering Committee comprises experts from many disciplines in various surveillance settings. Committee members will leverage their expertise to provide direction and recommendations for projects that benefit community engagement and collaboration across all sectors of the Community of Practice.
The NSSP CoP Steering Committee will work to ensure that the NSSP CoP effectively promotes the use and practice of syndromic surveillance, enables a peer-to-peer collaborative environment to foster and facilitate knowledge sharing and partnership, and enhances the nation’s syndromic surveillance capacity. The committee facilitates community engagement via structured mechanisms such as expert mentoring and discussion forums and works closely with community members to identify gaps in knowledge or practice.
The committee also serves as a conduit between the community and the many organizations that support syndromic surveillance in various capacities (e.g., informatics, software development, training programs, and guidelines). The committee monitors activities associated with the community of practice, particularly its website and forums, to identify topics of intrigue or concern. The committee champions causes that are important to and representative of the community.
