This popular book applies the author's many years of clinical and teaching experience to make the principles and methods of epidemiology easy to understand and enjoyable to read about. A clear, concise writing style and just the right dose of humor explain the role of epidemiology in measuring disease in a community, estimating risks, and influencing public policy and ethical concerns. Line diagrams, cartoons, and review questions with answers reinforce the text. Emphasizes both the underlying concepts as well as the practical uses of epidemiology in public health and in clinical practice. Organizes information in three logical sections: The Epidemiologic Approach to Disease and Intervention Using Epidemiology to Identify the Cause of Disease, and Applying Epidemiology to Evaluation and Policy. Systemizes learning and review with study questions in each section and an answer key and index. Illustrates textual information with line diagrams and cartoons. Offers up-to-date information on genetic contributions to disease. Integrates discussion of simultaneous and sequential testing. Provides additional material relating to randomized clinical trials. Incorporates updated and expanded discussions on epidemiology and policy. Adds an all-new subsection on policy decisions in the face of equivocal data and uncertainty. Offers updated clinical examples, including mammography.
