Basic Epidemiology

Posted By: hotspot
This manual provides an introduction to the principles and methods of epidemiology. It prepares members of the health-related professions for the increasing need to base health protection programmes and health care services on appropriate epidemiological analysis and the best possible use of resources. It is intended for use in the training of undergraduate medical and public health students, and of health professionals in In-service courses.

The key features of Basic Epidemiology are that it explains the principles of disease causation with particular emphasis on modifiable environmental factors; contains graphs and flow-charts for greater understanding; uses actual case studies and explains how to measure different diseases.
