Developed in collaboration with
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), contaminated foods sicken an estimated 48 million Americans annually, leading to 128,000 hospitalizations, and roughly 3,000 deaths. The AMA and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are collaborating on the mutual goal of developing and disseminating two web-based CME modules (enduring material) for the physician audience to assist them in addressing foodborne illnesses. The first video module is titled, “What Physicians Need to Know About Foodborne Illness: Suspect, Identify, Treat, and Report” and the title for the second video module is: “Talking to Patients About Food Safety.” The primary audience for the video is primary care and emergency medicine physicians who are likely to see the index case of a potential food-related disease outbreak. These modules remind physicians of their important role in recognizing symptoms and reporting cases of foodborne illness to public health authorities for further investigation.
Physicians can help guide patients in protecting themselves from foodborne illness. This video demonstrates tips for proper handling and serving food. Learn how to talk to patients about food safety as it relates to foodborne illness.
