To help inform health care professionals about new and reemerging foodborne illnesses, a new edition of Diagnosis and Management of Foodborne Illness: A Primer for Physicians and Other Health Care Professionals has been released. It was produced by the American Medical Association, in cooperation with the American Nurses Association, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other agencies.


The primer provides current, accurate information about diagnosing, treating, and reporting foodborne illnesses. It includes new sections on hepatitis A, noroviruses, antibiotic-resistant salmonella, congenital toxoplasmosis, and intentional contamination as well as patient-education materials about preventing foodborne illness.
