Abstract

Lists of reportable conditions and case definitions are important tools for epidemiologic surveillance. As part of an initiative to encourage occupational disease surveillance systems linked to intervention at the state level, we have proposed a list of target conditions and are developing a set of standard epidemiologic case definitions. Experience gained from state health department pilot projects using SENSOR and other surveillance approaches will be used to promote effective condition-specific surveillance strategies on a wider scale.
