dc.description.abstractBreaux, Lynn G., Syndromic Surveillance Systems: A Review and a Community Assessment in Tarrant County, Texas, Doctor of Public Health (Social and Behavioral Science), May 2005, 56 pp., 3 appendices, bibliography 116 titles. A comprehensive overview of Syndromic Surveillance Systems (SSS) is provided in Chapter I including history and threats to a SSS. Current state of SSS and SSS implementation considerations are detailed in Chapter II. A community assessment comprised of selected Tarrant County, Texas key stakeholders is included utilizing an open ended questions format detailed in Chapter III with results in Chapter IV. Introductory letters preceded the subjective, qualitative survey and obtained opinions and needs concerning SSS and implementation strategies. A broad range of responses was assessed based upon stakeholder knowledge of SSS and the part they feel they play in any implementation. Several central themes emerged, including stakeholder desire for involvement in SSS implementation and the request for the health department to answer any questions concerning this implementation. All central themes are discussed in Chapter V along with questions regarding use of the survey data and future interface between community partners.
