Thank you to everyone who was able to join the webinar “Tools and Apps to Enhance Situational Awareness for Global Disease Surveillance”. NACCHO has included the links to the resources and tools that Dr. Alina Desphande went over during her presentation. A copy of the slides is available below and a recording of the webinar can be found in the link below. Los Alamos National Labortory is looking for feedback on the tools so please review them and fill out their online feedback form.
Description: Situational awareness is important for early warning and early detection of infectious disease outbreaks and occurs at both local and global scales. Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is developing a suite of tools to provide actionable information and knowledge for enhanced situational awareness during an unfolding event. These tools are available to the global disease surveillance community through the LANL biosurveillance gateway (http://bsv.lanl.gov, under “resources” tab) or through independent links provided with each tool description;
The Biosurveillance Resource Directory (BRD, http://brd.lanl.gov): A tool to facilitate obtaining disease surveillance information. Contains information on disease surveillance resources worldwide
The Biosurveillance Analytics Resource Directory (BARD, http://bard.lanl.gov/brd): A tool to rapidly select appropriate epidemiological models for infectious disease prediction, forecasting and monitoring. Currently includes information on models for Malaria, Cholera, Influenza, Dengue and Foot and Mouth Disease.
The Surveillance Window app (SWAP, http://swap.lanl.gov): An app to provide context and a frame of reference for disease surveillance information on an unfolding event, through matching of user input to a library of global historical disease outbreaks
