During a Biosurveillance Working Group meeting at the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) office in Bismarck the following April, researchers with the NCFPD used the best practices in risk communication to guide an exploratory analysis of the anthrax case.
The best practices in risk communication developed by NCFPD were used as the criterion-referenced, or anchored, material (Boyatzis, 1998).
During the three-year grant cycle, NCFPD expects its research to establish best practices and attract new researchers to study questions on managing and responding to food contamination occurring both intentionally and naturally.
The site will provide an outlet for research generated by NCFPD and enable the state laboratories to share and compare methodologies should something happen.
Nine NCFPD research teams are looking at risk from multiple perspectives.
According to Busta, NCFPD's research will lead to systems and methods that will help educate the industry.
For example, NCFPD has a team of 47 academic and association educators developing in-person and virtual training materials, advanced courses, and interdisciplinary degrees on food protection and defense.
