Manual and Supporting Materials

The Peer Assessment Toolkit Manual begins with a brief introduction to the peer assessment process and a glossary of terms used. Next detailed information is provided for both requestors and assessment teams about the peer assessment process and root cause analysis, illustrated with an example based on the 2012 West Nile Virus Outbreak in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex in Texas. In addition, two separate and parallel sections provide detailed Job Action Sheets for both requestors and assessment teams. The final section summarizes the research background supporting the peer assessment process. To download the manual of the toolkit:  Peer Assessment of Public Health Emergency Response Toolkit
