Notifiable disease report (NDR) manual. Ninth edition.

Description

The Notifiable Disease Report (NDR) Manual describes the roles and responsibilities of public health reporters and of Alberta Health in the systematic collection, analysis, interpretation and dissemination of data to appropriate stakeholders. It provides clarity on the notifiable disease reporting requirements for investigators. It also provides guidance for the completion of the Report of Notifiable Disease (NDR) form. The NDR form is intended to be a surveillance tool that collects meaningful disease information in Alberta in a manner that allows it to be easily analyzed, interpreted, and disseminated. Use of the NDR manual will help to ensure and maintain consistency in gathering information and interpretation of the form fields.
