Exciting news for field epidemiology enthusiasts! The ultimate online resource, FEMWiki, is back and better than ever! Transmissible has breathed new life into the comprehensive Field Epidemiology Manual in Wiki format, and it's now available for you to explore and expand your knowledge in this crucial field.
Originally crafted by the supervisors and scientific coordinators of the European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training (EPIET), FEMWiki was first published in 2007 under a Creative Commons License. The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) commissioned the development of this interactive platform to the innovative City eHealth Research Centre (CeRC - City University, London). Between 2007 and 2016, the FEMWIKI community grew, wrote new content, and added curricular tools, including MS PowerPoint lectures.
After migrating to a Microsoft SharePoint wiki in 2017, the ECDC eventually discontinued the interactive project in 2022, converting all its content into a single large PDF. But the story doesn't end there!
Arnold Bosman, one of the original FEMWiki developers, was determined to revitalize FEMWiki and uphold its Creative Commons License; he brought the interactive repository back to life through Transmissible.
We're thrilled to announce that on April 1st, www.femwiki.org was re-launched. As of April 18, 2023, the entire contents of the original FEMWiki platform are once again accessible to the global community of field epidemiologists.
Don't miss out on this invaluable resource! Whether you're a seasoned expert or just starting your journey into field epidemiology, FEMWiki offers a wealth of information on methods, principles, and best practices. Join us in celebrating the return of this vital tool and take advantage of the opportunity to deepen your understanding and expertise in the field of epidemiology.
