Jones & Bartlett Learning, 2008 - 227 páginas
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? Check out Cases 1, 2, 19, & 21 in Essential Case Studies in Public Health, Putting Public Health into Practice.
