The Emerging Infections Sentinel Network (EISN) program assists awardees in operating provider-based sentinel networks.
These networks will contribute to surveillance for emerging infectious diseases, including drug-resistant, foodborne and waterborne, and vaccine-preventable or potentially vaccine-preventable
diseases, and will enhance information exchange.
Research objectives for the provider-based sentinel networks include investigations of various emerging infections and implementation of studies to examine risk factors, determine practice guidelines, and evaluate outcomes.
This FOA specifically aims to support the collection of infectious disease (ID) data from academically affiliated emergency departments.
