Articles for April Literature Review

The Research Committee will be holding its monthly Literature Review on Thursday, April 23rd 2009 at 10:00 am EDT. This month, Professor Marianne Frisén of the University of Gothenburg has been invited to present her recent article, "Robust outbreak surveillance of epidemics in Sweden."

The first 30 minutes of the call will be spent discussing the month's article summaries, and then Prof. Frisén will make her presentation followed by a discussion, starting promptly at 10:30 am EDT.

Below are recent selections from our PubCrawler search, which are collected by the Research Committee's gmail account. To download pdf versions of the articles, Committee members are invited to log in to the account. Please see the following contact information to get the gmail account details.

Please email your input on any selected articles by April 22, 2009 to rviola@syndromic.org.

As always, this call is optional for contributors but is an opportunity to help, express concerns, and make suggestions.

Please note any articles of high quality and broad appeal for inviting the authors for online presentation or for consideration for ISDS recognition in its annual awards.

To clarify the process for our growing list of participants, the submissions should be brief structured summaries rather than formal reviews. Submit a summary only if you feel that the article is worthy of posting.
