  • discuss technical limitations in the investigation and prevention of Legionella in accommodation sites
  • utilise the materials reviewed when training the local teams in their country 
  • plan and implement half-day information seminars in their own country
  • discuss country experiences of working towards prevention of Legionnaires' disease associated with tourist accommodation.

Target audience  

The participation in this course will be based on the ongoing framework of ECDC Technical EU Pre-accession. Through this framework, ECDC will invite 3-4 designated representatives from EU enlargement country. The invited participants will have previous experience in:

Legionnaires’ disease epidemiology and preferably nominated for ECDC EPIS ELDSNet access;

  • Environmental sampling, laboratory testing or control of Legionella bacteria;
  • Communication, training or prevention awareness activities;
  • Implementing local/regional level action in responding to Legionella cases/outbreaks or site investigations.

Two EU MS experts will be invited to share their experience in working with accommodation owners, travel organisations, and relevant national authorities for Legionella prevention and response.

Description  

The workshop aims to support Enlargement countries in raising awareness on the risks and prevention measures of Legionnaires' disease in accommodation sites. This train-the-trainers workshop will provide a practical training for national experts working on Legionnaires’ disease to enable them to facilitate and deliver an information seminar in their country’s language and legislative setting. As the workshop and the relevant materials will be provided in English, any required translation to different languages or adaptation to national legislation/guidelines will be organised by participants.

Note: This course is not open for public enrolment. Participation is through invitation by the focal point of the respective disease programme or function areas which is guided by the framework of collaboration between ECDC and the Coordinating Competent Bodies of Member States.
