Dynamics of Disease Transmission: From Genomes to Infection Control, from Beds to Bases and Bytes

The EUCIC advanced module in Freiburg focuses on the application of modern methods and techniques such as whole genome sequencing (WGS) and mathematic modelling for infection prevention and control (IPC) efforts. It is a hands-on course with practical sessions, including analysis of real outbreak data and simulating the spread of different infectious diseases inside and outside of a hospital. You will
have the opportunity to be taught by top experts from different centres from all over Europe. Learn how to interpret modelling and WGS data for infection control purposes, and get deeper insights into transmission dynamics and kinetics of infectious diseases.

Epidemiology and Data analysis in Infection Control

 

This EUCIC advanced module will cover epidemiology and data-analysis of clinical infection control problems, from formulating a valid research question to designing a study, performing data analysis and interpreting the results.

Throughout the course, theoretical lectures on clinical epidemiology and general principles of healthcare epidemiology will be intertwined with group work on case studies. The participants will gain hands-on training in epidemiology and data-analysis and will have ample opportunity for active participation.
