dc.description.abstractThe Communicable Diseases, Epidemiology and Surveillance (CDES) branch, Victorian Government Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), works closely with the Microbiological Diagnostic Unit Public Health Laboratory (MDU) to conduct surveillance of communicable diseases in Victoria. From February 2018 to December 2019, I attended field placements at both CDES and MDU. This thesis comprises projects which together meet the requirements for the Masters of Philosophy (Applied Epidemiology) (MAE). The projects include: an analysis to assess changes in the epidemiology of invasive pneumococcal disease in Victoria, 2008-2018; an evaluation of the surveillance of antimicrobial resistance in Victoria; a cross-sectional study of the genomic epidemiology of vancomycin-resistant enterococci, Victoria, November 2018; investigation of an outbreak of salmonellosis at a Mother's day lunch in regional Victoria, and recruitment of case-controls for a multi-jurisdictional outbreak investigation of hepatitis A. In addition, this thesis describes teaching activities undertaken as part of the MAE.
