The scientific collaborator will plan and implement a population-based cohort study on acute gastrointestinal illnesses in Switzerland.
Within our Swiss health systems research portfolio, we focus on infectious diseases and surveillance systems. We aim to understand the burden of illness pyramid, hence, how disease incidence at population-level translates into case notification to the mandatory Swiss National Notification System for Infectious Diseases (NNSID). - This involves studying patients (risk factors for disease and helpseeking), but also physicians (clinical, diagnosis and treatment management); and the etiology of a gastrointestinal episode. You will set up and manage a cohort study on acute gastroenteritis in all Switzerland with multiple research partners.
