GPHW2023: Towards Training a New Generation of Infodemic Managers


Mar 9, 2023

Theme: Preparing Public Health Professionals & Associations for the New Challenges

Date and Time: 03 April 2023 | 13:00 – 14:00 (CEST)

Event Description: As new acute public health crises emerge daily, many countries request infodemic managers to be deployed. However, health-oriented agencies offering these services are in serious lack of people with experience and the right competencies. Early during the COVID-19 pandemic, people from disinformation research, journalism, and fact-checking stepped into this space to fill the analytical needs gap. What is now needed are fully trained infodemic managers who mastered the complex skillset required to mitigate the damaging impact of the infodemic on public health. This cannot be achieved without the cooperation of higher education institutions, mainly the Schools of Public Health and/or Faculties of Medicine. This online round table will bring international speakers of different backgrounds and affiliations to discuss the possible integration of infodemic management competencies into medical curricula and other forms of continuous medical education.
