Diagnostic decision making and epidemiological disease information management (LVM323)
This module will introduce you to diagnostic decision-making, a process which most clinicians deal with by combining factual knowledge, experience and intuition.
The application of epidemiology to the improvement of livestock health and production requires responsible management of disease information. From collecting data on milk production from a single dairy farm, to using country-wide disease data to determine national livestock import policies, careful and appropriate data management is essential.
This module will introduce you to the types of data you might encounter, methods of collecting and storing those data, and some of the many epidemiological tools available to extract as much information as possible for production and disease management decisions.
