Mortality rate Mortality rate (the number of death divide by person years at risk) 4/1,265,000 = 0.000003162 x 100,000 = 0.3162055336 (0.3 deaths of 100,000 per year) E. Interpret the odds ratio
ratio is 1.5, Ate ground beef the odds ratio is 1.3, and Exposed to live chickens the odds ratio is 1.3. The foods that pose the less of a risk are ate chicken the odds ratio is 0.5, Bought refrigerated eggs the odds ratio is 0.1, and Refrigerated eggs at home the odds ratio is 0.03. F. Connections What I learned about the public health issue by studying the population was I did not know that most animals carry Salmonella in there intestines. I also learned that the eggs used in this population they were getting people sick and it came from 6 different farms that were not clean and sanitary. Studying the public health issue is that Trinidad and Tobago communities were lacking in health education and how to prevent Salmonella infection. III. Levels of Prevention A. Primary Prevention Strategy A Primary prevention in the research study would be the strategies combining public health education of consumers, food service establishments, and food workers on the risks associated with eating raw and undercooked eggs and using unrefrigerated eggs (Stehr-Green, 2004). B. Secondary Prevention Strategy A Secondary prevention in the research study would be when the Ministry of Agriculture developed a protocol to identify and remove infected flocks from the egg supply and increase quality assurance and sanitation measures at egg-producing farms (Stehr-Green , 2004). - Both eggs and chickens from commercial egg-producing farms will be tested for Salmonella on a quarterly basis. - Any flocks that test positive for Salmonella on routine exam will be re-tested. - If a second sample is positive, trace back investigations will be undertaken to identify breeder flocks. - Infected breeder flocks (those that produced the egg-laying chickens) will be slaughtered.
- Eggs from infected egg-laying chickens will be pasteurized instead of being sold as shell eggs. - Non-infected flocks from farms at which infected flocks have been detected will be tested more frequently (every 4 weeks). (Stehr-Green , 2004). C. Tertiary Prevention Strategy
