The 2nd Edition of Epidemiology teaches the basic principles and methods of epidemiology in an understandable and interesting manner. Both the underlying concepts as well as the practical uses of epidemiology in both public health and clinical practice are emphasized. The book is organized into three sections: Section One focuses on the epidemiologic approach to assessing the extent and severity of disease in the community. Section Two deals with using epidemiology to identify the causes of disease. Section Three discusses the use of epidemiology for evaluating health services and screening programs. Many of the diagrams and illustrations have been developed by the author in over 20 years of professional practice. Features: * Unique, new chapters on epidemiologic studies of genetic factors; epidemiology and policy; and ethical and professional issues in epidemiology have been added. * The book contains over 20 years of experience from a leader in the epidemiologic field. * Many new examples - including tamoxifen and breast cancer, twin studies of genetics in Parkinson's disease, and mammography for women in their forties - guarantee readers will have the most up-to-date studies and information available. * Extensive original diagrams and illustrations clarify ideas and concepts in the text. * The organization and logical flow of the book makes learning easier for students. * Discussions of survival analysis, factorial design, biases in epidemiologic studies, outcomes research, and risk analysis have been expanded.
