The innovative approach of tabletop simulation has proven to be a highly effective teaching method for post-graduate students specializing in One Health, particularly in the field of outbreak investigation and management. This year, the program was hosted at the Bangi Resort Hotel in Selangor, providing a conducive environment for participants to engage in-depth discussions about their strategic responses to simulated outbreak scenarios. Over the course of three days, guided by expert facilitators, participants delved into crucial topics such as the foundational principles of the One Health approach in managing zoonotic disease outbreaks. The program also incorporated practical exercises and narratives enriched by insightful speakers and facilitators. The program included an illuminating field visit to the Malaysian Quarantine and Inspection Services (MAQIS) at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) to bridge the gap between theory and practice. This firsthand experience reinforced theoretical knowledge and underscored the real-world applications of the concepts discussed in the classroom, enhancing participants, overall comprehension and readiness for effective outbreak management.
