NC Epi Teams Training
Line Listing Activity

Instructions

This activity allows you to practice creating a line listing as part of a disease outbreak investigation.

Each page provides information about an outbreak scenario. Click “Next Page” to move on to the next page or “Previous Page” to go back. You can monitor your progress at the bottom of the page (e.g. Page 4 of 25).

Many pages contain links to additional information. Links will open in a new window; be sure to disable your pop-up blocker (or hold the shift key while clicking on the link) to allow these windows to open. Click "Close window" to return to the main activity page.

Throughout the activity, you will see the following icons:

note padThe Note Pad, located in the upper right corner of every screen, contains a summary of all of the information you have learned so far. Information is automatically added to the Note Pad so you do not need to print information from every screen. To view a note, click on its title. To hide a note, click on its title again.

voicemailThe voicemail icon indicates that you have a new message. You can listen to the voicemail if you have computer speakers or headphones (recommended), or view a transcript of your voicemail message. A summary of the message will be added to the Note Pad.

emailThe email icon indicates that you have a new email message. Your message will open in a new window. You will have the option to print your email, and the message contents will be added to the Note Pad.

labThe lab icon indicates laboratory results that you have received. The results will open in a new window. You will have the option to print the laboratory results, and they will be added to the Note Pad.

excelThe Excel icon represents a line listing document. A screenshot of a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet will open in a new window and be added to the Note Pad.
