Issues and Challenges: Investigation of Foodborne Illness in Jamaica / Toronto, Canada

This session reviews an outbreak investigation conducted in a mega hotel in Jamaica. Along the way, we discover gaps in the investigation process, describe challenges in disease surveillance, and determine the barriers to effective outbreak prevention and control.

See how the existing regulations stack up against changing trends in the tourism sector and possible remedies for the shortcomings. Use this case study to identify the emerging challenges and possible solutions in your outbreak investigation process before they happen.
