Workshop (90min on site in Wrocław)

Short hands-on introduction to infodemiology and infoveillence for One Health Specialists

We will run a hands-on tutorial on infovaillence (mainly) and infodemiology. Social (new) and traditional media listening is known as the OSINT tool and has already been adopted by WHO and CDC in addressing public health issues. However, due to the failure of the “Google Flu ” project and multiple other problems such as geolocalization, social media listening was not integrated into surveillance systems to a high extent. We will try to explain why it happened and what are possible benefits of using this approach. Infovaillence deals with the analysis of web content to predict or understand medical phenomena. Its most important advantage is the possibility of early warning (e.g. participatory reporting), or forecasting or improving estimators of incidence, prevalence or compliance to measures. Moving syndromic surveillance to the internet had great relevance (estimating the scale of health problems, early warning of events).
During my tutorial I will also present how real time listening to social media supported the hypothesis on the biological cause of the Oder river disaster in August 2022.
Learning objectives:
-Understanding possibilities and weaknesses of infovaillance/infodemiology approaches
-Utilising simple, free and commercial social/new media monitors
-Ability to perform almost real-time listening to support One Health surveillance
-Understanding performance of Internet-based syndromic surveillance
