Title: Practicing veterinarians can play a role in determining new diseases in pigs
Author: Friendship, R.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: Veterinarians that work with pigs can play an important role in detecting out-breaks of disease in pig populations. As part of a surveillance program, veterinarians shared information about diseases in the pigs they treated. The researchers evaluated this surveillance program. The researchers found that veterinarians were willing to participate in a surveillance program, and that useful data were produced. Recommendations to improve the surveillance program included better communication with veterinarians, and more user-friendly recording systems.
