Prof. Frederick “Skip” Burkle and Prof. Benjamin Ryan join the podcast series for a very special extended discussion looking at their two recently published Open Access papers in PDM. Prof. Burkle gives an in-depth overview of the concept of population-based management teams and the development of a new global database to deal with pandemics. Prof. Ryan provides a ground-level account of how this model was applied on the Baylor University campus in Waco, Texas (USA).
Both papers, Global Public Health Database Support to Population-Based Management of Pandemics and Global Public Health Crises – Parts I and II, are available at the following links:
Part I – The Concept – doi.org/10.1017/S1049023X20001351
Part II – The Database – doi.org/10.1017/S1049023X20001363
