Communities of Practice
A Community of Practice (CoP) represents a group of professionals, informally bound to one another through exposure to a common class of problems and common pursuit of solutions. Communities of Practice are a way of developing social capital, nurturing new knowledge, stimulating innovation, and sharing knowledge. Communities of practice knit people together with peers and their outputs can include leading practices, guidelines, knowledge repositories, technical problem and solution discussions, working papers, and strategies.
ISDS currently supports two CoPs:
The National Syndromic Surveillance Program (NSSP) Community of Practice
The One Health Surveillance Community of Practice
