Public health laboratories : leveraging partnerships to strengthen preparedness & response : 2013 APHL all-hazards laboratory preparedness report( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In accordance with Presidential Decision Directive 39, the CDC, the FBI and APHL formed the LRN in 1999. This network is the nation's premier system for identifying, testing and characterizing potential agents of biological and chemical terrorism. The LRN's vast, integrated network of state and local public health, federal, military and international laboratories enables it to respond quickly to all-hazards threats. State and local public health laboratories comprise approximately 70% of the 160 LRN Biological Reference Laboratories and almost 100% of the LRN Chemical Laboratories. These laboratories produce high-confidence test results that are the basis for threat analysis and intervention by both public health and law enforcement authorities

Data summary of the 2010 core laboratory profiles survey : snapshot of state public health laboratories( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"For more than a century, the Public Health Laboratory System has been at the epicenter of the public health system, offering services essential to protecting the health of the public while providing the scientific expertise vital to making wise judgments and decisions concerning public health. As part of its mission, APHL works to support and strengthen State Public Health Laboratories (SPHL) and the State Public Health Laboratory System in the United States. Within the 50 SPHLs and the District of Columbia, there exists a wide variety in funding, infrastructure, operations, services, research initiatives, etc. APHL provides data and other information that both present an accurate image of SPHLs as well as describe the current state of our nation's SPHLs. In 2002, APHL developed the Core Survey to capture a snapshot of SPHLs' activities in seven categories that either describe or affect PHLs' abilities to operate. In 2007, the survey instrument changed, but some questions remained consistent to capture the core data. Furthermore, in 2011, APHL modified the survey and renamed it the Core Laboratory Profiles Survey to capture essential laboratory data for the calendar year 2010. A set of core questions remained consistent for 2002, 2007 and 2010 for data comparison purposes. This report provides detailed responses from the 2010 Core Laboratory Profiles Survey, which are complemented by responses to several questions posed in the 2010 Comprehensive Laboratory Services Survey (CLSS), a longitudinal survey conducted every two years. This enabled APHL to utilize data already collected without duplicating efforts in the CLSS survey. By using data from two surveys instead of one, APHL has developed a clearer, more panoramic picture of SPHLs as they appeared in 2010. This data will be made available online as a project called the APHL Member Laboratory Profiles. This will allow SPHLs to view and update the profile of their laboratory as they adapt and evolve to meet the challenges of the 21st century. The information in these profiles will have an important impact as APHL continues to provide support and advocate on behalf of public health laboratories across the country. This data summary report offers detailed analysis of the data collected in 2010 and makes comparisons to the 2007 data where available."--Page 5

A Practical guide to public health laboratories for state health officials( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Representatives from the Association of State and Territorial Health Of!cials (ASTHO) and the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) saw future issues looming -- primarily funding issues, but also IT, biosecurity, and emerging health threats -- that could affect the relationship between state health of!cials and public health labs. The time to forge strong and "exible connections was now, they decided, and they convened a group of SHOs, Senior Deputies and lab directors, colleagues from the CDC and facilitators. The group, armed with an agenda of questions and issues contributed by SHOs and lab directors from around the nation, held several conference calls, information exchanges and a day-and-a-half-long face-to-face meeting to determine what information should be included -- and what was most urgent. As the process took place, the ongoing pandemic H1N1 crisis continued -- and continued to yield valuable insights about relationships among SHOs, state health departments, programs, federal entities and public health labs of all kinds. The group shared a sense that the crisis was fueling a new interconnectiveness that would bene!t public health into the future -- an acknowledgment that each institution and each person held an essential role in containing the virus and its effects, and therefore in saving lives. We hope this guide works to expand this understanding and valuing of all contributions."--Page 1

Volume and type of laboratory testing methods for sexually transmitted diseases in public health laboratories, 2007 : summary report January 2011 by Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (U.S.) National Center for HIV/AIDS( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report provides a summary of the responses received from a web-based survey conducted among public health laboratories on the volume and type of testing for sexually transmitted diseases in the United States in 2007. The survey was conducted in January 2008, and responses were received from 61.4% (94 of 153) of all invited participants. Overall in 2007, 3,290,390 chlamydia tests and 3,157,827gonorrhea tests were performed in surveyed laboratories; 89.7% of chlamydia tests and 84.4% of gonorrhea tests were nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs). Of the 90 labs reporting any gonorrhea testing, 52.1% reported performing gonorrhea culture. Among the surveyed laboratories that reported doing gonorrhea testing, but reported having no culture capacity, 33.3% had access to gonorrhea culture for medical-legal purposes. Over 90% of surveyed laboratories reported conducting syphilis testing. Of the 49 public health laboratories that reported doing herpes testing (79,614 total tests), 71.4% reported doing standard cell culture, and 30.6% of labs performed the HerpesSelect test (type-specific serology). Only 14 labs reported performing any trichomonas testing, and the majority of tests were culture based. Only 10 labs reported performing any bacterial vaginosis testing. Three labs performed 3,315 human papillomavirus tests and 5 labs reported doing pap smears, of which the majority was using liquid-based cytology

Data obtained from this year's survey, the 2011 APHL All-Hazards Laboratory Preparedness Survey, highlight the countless contributions made by SPHLs since the establishment of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) Cooperative Agreement. Survey data also provide a means of identifying gaps and remaining areas of need within the public health laboratory preparedness setting
