We have several processes that we aren't able to identify the exact cause of the problem. I will use Grace's QI tools to begin to break down the process.

Outbreak Investigation: Epi-Ready Course
The Epi-Ready course is an in-person, team-based training for public health professionals involved in foodborne disease outbreak investigations. Coordinated by the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) and funded by CDC, it is a two day, face-to-face training. Epi-Ready focuses on how to efficiently and effectively respond to a foodborne disease outbreak through a "team-based” approach, bringing together the disciplines involved in the investigation of these outbreaks (i.e., environmental health specialists/sanitarian, epidemiologists, laboratorians, and public health nurses).
