The goal of population-based disease case management is to optimize the self-care capabilities of individuals and families, including the capacity of systems and communities to coordinate and provide health and human services. This training will present a brief introduction to infectious disease case management principles. The primary goal of local public health officials, as infectious disease case managers, is to ensure individuals complete an appropriate and effective course of treatment in the shortest time possible with the least restrictive measures indicated, and to identify all high-risk contacts and refer them to evaluation and treatment.

Reviewers say, "This is a timely topic and will be very beneficial in addressing the case manager role in preventing infectious disease spread in the community."
