Back to Connecticut PBRN Page


The Connecticut PBRN is developing and testing measures of the quality of local public health emergency response activities using the 2009-10 H1N1 influenza outbreak as a test case. This study’s aims are to: (1) develop quality measures specific to the H1N1 context using retrospective data from the 2009-10 outbreak response; (2) test the validity and reliability of these measures; (3) use measures to compare the quality of response across different types of local public health settings across the state; and (4) identify factors that contribute to differential quality of response across local settings.
