NCCID continues to contribute resources for public health practitioners during the current COVID-19 pandemic. We’re excited and grateful that MPH Online has ranked Infectious Questions in their top 30 public health podcasts of 2020.
As we continue producing episodes of Infectious Questions during this challenging time for public health, we understand the massive physical and emotional toll on practitioners. Infectious Questions offers public health and healthcare workers with concise information on current public health issues. We speak with public health experts, in a Q+A format, to answer our listeners’ most pressing questions. We know time is a valuable commodity, especially during a crisis, so we do our best to provide concise information briefly. Most episodes range between 10 to 20 minutes and answer several questions submitted by listeners. We also transcribe each episode in English and French.
We are currently producing weekly podcasts for the COVID-19 pandemic. Topics include:
- Canada’s laboratory response
- Infection prevention and control
- Effective public health engagement for nurses
- Stigma and discrimination
- Preparedness in First Nations communities
- Preparedness in Long Term Care homes and supportive residences for seniors
