    • Description:
      Following up on a recent gap analysis, ASTHO conducted key informant interviews to better improve our understanding of the utility, perceived value, comprehensiveness, and reach and availability of Legionnaires’ disease guidance for state and territorial health agencies, as well as their resource needs.

      In an effort to dig deeper into the findings of the 2019 Legionnaires’ Disease (LD) Outbreak Response Gap Analysis, ASTHO developed a guide to conduct key informant interviews with five state health agencies (SHAs) on key topics. Questions were based off the original report findings and were intended to enhance our understanding of the utility, perceived value, comprehensiveness, and reach or availability of LD guidance for SHAs. Interview questions focused on relationships, processes and policies, usability, successes, challenges, needs, and gaps.

      In 2020, ASTHO used this guide to interview LD staff in states that represent the Northeast, South, Midwest, and West regions, covering six different topical areas for state LD programs. Topics included the overall structure of LD programs, diagnosis and clinical testing protocols, surveillance and reporting, outbreak and response, water management programs and prevention, and risk communication (see appendix). The results and key takeaways from these interviews are summarized below.
