"ISW 7: Recommendations for National and State Poisoning Surveillance"
In the past two decades, poisoning – particularly drug poisoning – has emerged as an area of significant public health concern in the United States. Poisoning surveillance faces challenges that can hamper prevention and evaluation, including a lack of formal standardized definitions for surveillance of poisonings and changes in the ICD classifications of poisonings over time.
In response to these issues, the Safe States Alliance Injury Surveillance Workgroup (ISW) released the Consensus Recommendations for National and State Poisoning Surveillance report.
Co-sponsored by the Safe States Alliance and the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), speakers presented highlights from the ISW7 report and next steps for a collaborative effort to test and validate key report recommendations.
Featured speakers included:
- Margaret Warner, PhD, Injury Epidemiologist, CDC National Center for Health Statistics
- Michael Bauer, MS, Director, New York State Department of Health Injury Prevention Program and Chair of the CSTE Injury Subcommittee; and
- Denise Paone, EdD, Director of Research and Program Development, New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and Chair of the CSTE Drug Overdose Subcommittee.
The webinar was moderated by Monique Sheppard, PhD, Director of Health at Econometrica, Inc. and Chair of the Safe States ISW 7.
