Book Description

June 27 2003 9780195150780 978-0195150780 1
This is a rigorous, systematic introduction to the basic concepts and practical tools of epidemiologic research. It is aimed at readers who will be conducting epidemiologic studies themselves or who need a firm grasp of epidemiologic principles in order to interpret and evaluate studies conducted by others. Besides offering clear descriptions of key concepts, the book is rich with examples illustrating how these concepts are applied. Some examples are drawn from classic studies in the field--the work of Snow, Semmelweis, Goldberger, Doll and Hill, and others--while many others concern modern-day epidemiologic studies of problems of current public health importance. Almost every chapter includes a set of exercises (with answers) to help students gain practice in applying new ideas and techniques. The book's chapters are organized around three main themes: general concepts and methods of epidemiology; major study designs; and evaluating policies and programs. Collectively, these topics form the core material for a graduate-level course or course sequence in epidemiologic methods. Both authors are experienced epidemiologic researchers and have won multiple awards for effective teaching.

4.0 out of 5 stars Epidemiologic Methods Nov. 14 2005
By M. Tinawi - Published on Amazon.com
This book covers epidemiology beyond the basics. It is at a graduate course level in epidemiology. The book is easy to read for the most part. A general knowledge of biostatistics is helpful. The numerous examples make the concepts easier to understand. There are excercises at the end of every chapter to illustrate the topics further. I recommend the book to anyone who is in interested in an in depth look at epidemiologic methods.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference April 1 2008
By M. Sorensen - Published on Amazon.com
This book was included as required reading for my graduate level epidemiology course. I borrowed the book from a friend as a reference during the course but it is so excellent that I now am purchasing it to have. The targeted chapters on case-control studies, RCTs, cohort studies and ecologic studies are all excellent. The examples drive home the points as do the questions at the end of the chapter. A must have for a budding epidemiologist or outcomes researcher.
1.0 out of 5 stars New edition coming out any day May 20 2014
By Sarah Schwartz - Published on Amazon.com
This book is great, but the 2nd edition of this book is coming out between June and August 2014, so it's a waste to buy this one. Here's the new version, which can only be found by searching for the ISBN. Searching by the title or author's name does not pull it up. Epidemiologic Methods: Studying the Occurrence of Illness
