This introduction to epidemiology helps medical, nursing, and pharmacy students develop a system to observe and assess outcomes in similar patient types, and then apply this knowledge of outcomes to improve future patient care. The Fourth Edition has been redesigned to enhance understanding with new illustrations, pedagogical tools, examples, and summary boxes. According to a faculty member at the University of North Carolina, "This is one of the few books truly written for students of clinical epidemiology...I've used it in the past and would do so in the future. The book is comprehensive and takes a practical approach to explaining important topics."

The new edition of this popular textbook remains a clear and practical introduction to epidemiology for students in all areas of health. By emphasising the role of epidemiology across a broad range of health monitoring and research, it gives students an understanding of the fundamental principles common to all areas of epidemiology. It also integrates the study of infectious and chronic diseases as well as public health and clinical epidemiology. Avoiding complex mathematics, it steps through the methods and potential problems underlying health data and reports, while maintaining a balance of rigour and clarity. The nuts-and-bolts of epidemiology are embedded in the wider international health perspective through recent and classical examples across different areas of health to engage students from a range of backgrounds. Concepts are illustrated with charts and graphs, and end-of-chapter questions test understanding (with answers provided). Online resources include further exercises, slides for teaching and useful weblinks.

UNDERSTANDING EVIDENCE IN HEALTH CARE delivers the essentials of clinical epidemiology to users of research literature, enabling them to practice evidence-based health care. It shows health care personnel how to have an effective understanding of published reports, interact with the hard-to-find and hard-to-understand terminology, and get real understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of scientific information in their field. Structured with the same flow as a research report and designed to develop and grow the student's skill as they read, this title is an accessible and essential text for doctors, nurses and health professionals in all fields.

Examining the principles and methods of research on the evaluation of factors affecting the outcome of illness, this volume emphasizes diagnostic and therapeutic interventions--the factors most readily modified by health care providers. The author discusses various ways of structuring observations on patient groups, and appraises the nature and strength of inferences drawn from those observations. Weiss also demonstrates how the results of this type of research--clinical epidemiologic research--can be incorporated into the decision-making process utilized in clinical medicine. The Second edition differs from the earlier one in a number of respects. It now employs a broader frame of reference, which includes studies such as those of adverse drug effects that use multipurpose computerized databases, and an expanded, explanation of the structure of evidence for drawing inferences, particularly evidence pertaining to the efficacy of testing. Examples have been modernized and replaced with more recent experimental results throughout the text, while decision analysis has been de-emphasized. The book's underlying theme, however, remains the same: the resources available to health care are finite and, through properly conducted research, the most efficient and safest ways of using these resources can and should be identified.

As WHO Director-General Nakajima says of infectious disease, “No country is safe from them.” As public health education grows, so, too will the need for methodologic skills in infectious disease epidemiology. Without these crucial skills, there will be insufficient resources to improve the health of the public, both domestically and globally. Essentials of Infectious Disease Epidemiology is one of the few texts devoted specifically to the methods required to study infectious disease making the perfect introduction to the field for undergraduate and introductory masters-level public health students. It will provide students with the requisite skills to conduct, evaluate, and understand the field of infectious disease epidemiology. Looking for more real-life evidence?

Successfully tested in the authors' courses at Boston University and Harvard University, this text combines theory and practice in presenting traditional and new epidemiologic concepts. Broad in scope, the text opens with five chapters covering the basic epidemiologic concepts and data sources. A major emphasis is placed on study design, with separate chapters devoted to each of the three main analytic designs: experimental, cohort, and case-control studies. Full chapters on bias, confounding, and random error, including the role of statistics in epidemiology, ensure that students are well-equipped with the necessary information to interpret the results of epidemiologic studies. An entire chapter is also devoted to the concept of effect measure modification, an often-neglected topic in introductory textbooks. Up-to-date examples from the epidemiologic literature on diseases of public health importance are provided throughout the book. The Third Edition is a thorough update that offers: New examples, the latest references, and public health statistics. Nearly 50 new review questions. Updated discussion of certain epidemiologic methods. New figures depicting epidemiologic concepts."

The needs of clinicians predominate throughout the text, but these needs overlap with those of researchers especially in chapters covering randomized controlled trials. For readers to assess trials accurately they need to understand relevant guidelines on the conduct of trials that are emerging from methodological research. In presenting these discussions to clinicians these chapters will help researchers who also do randomized trials and provide a methodological background that enhances the quality and quantity of their research productivity. Enables clinicians to read the medical literature more critically Chapters cover: descriptive studies, cohort studies, case control studies, bias, and screening tests Five chapters dedicated to randomized controlled trials
