It is likely that at some time every public health official is asked to measure the immediate health effects of an acute environmental event that may affect the population, and to provide reassurance to the public. So, how should this best be achieved? This chapter aims to give a practical guide on real-time syndromic surveillance, when and why one might use it, when not to use it, and where to go for help.
