The Field Epidemiology Manual - FEMwiki has been developed in recent years to support the European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training (EPIET). Link is available in the EpiLinks module.
Trainers, supervisors, scientific coordinators, and facilitators created draft chapters using the lectures they delivered during the EPIET introductory course. The philosophy of sharing and building knowledge (in particular training materials) led to the idea and creation of a collaborative information space for the epidemiological training community (FEM Wiki).
The aim of the FEM Wiki is to create a library of training materials for field epidemiology training programmes, as well as a market place for discussions on all theoretical and practical aspects of field epidemiology. Central to this effort will be the Field Epidemiology Manual, a core document for use when undertaking field investigations and research projects in intervention epidemiology.
