Learning Areas:Biostatistics, economics
Protection of the public in relation to communicable diseases including prevention or control
Systems thinking models (conceptual and theoretical models), applications related to public health
Describe how an epidemiologic modeling approach can be used to estimate morbidity and mortality from influenza pandemics Discuss how the exceedance probabilities of differing levels of morbidity and mortality resulting from influenza pandemics can be estimated Explain how utilizing a range of hypothetical influenza pandemic scenarios can be used to improve public health preparedness efforts
