All things considered I'm glad they decided to remove topics. The tests rarely pertained to them anyway, and when they did it was seldom done correctly. The 2017 and 2018 Nationals DD had NOT ONE QUESTION in Foodbourne illnesses.

Besides, the "topic" takes away from the true essence of the event, which is not knowing what the disease will be and figuring it out.

I don't know, what do you guys think? I've been dying to hear what other people in DD think about this, being the only veteran in the event at my school. Should the rules revert to topic format or is this a change in the right direction?
I'm supportive of the changes, including the removal of topic, for the reasons you describe.

I would like topics if there was even one section in the rules that mentioned them and had provisions about what we should actually know about them. The only place in previous years where the topic was even mentioned was the short description of the event.

Does anybody at all know where I can find or what the "the 5 step Process for Surveillance " is?
I've searched it up a lot and can't find anything solid, nor 5 steps.

I'm not sure... the WHO seems to list three steps http://www.who.int/ncd_surveillance/en/ ... _dec03.pdf

The CDC website is good, and Wikipedia also has a lot of information.
