From the Back Cover

In recent years the public has clearly become markedly moreinterested in assuring the safety and effectiveness of itsmedicines. It is also critical that available medicines areused optimally, by both health care practitioners andpatients. We need to know the extent to which an interventiondoes what it is really intended to do, under routine circumstancesrather than ideal conditions, for those who receiveit. Appropriate and valid pharmacoepidemiology methods arecentral to evaluating the safety and effectiveness of medicines andtheir use. Brian Strom’s book, now in its fourthedition, is the comprehensive text for such evaluations.

It provides methods, details of potential data sources, andinformation about evaluating the results and drawingconclusions. The successful layout and easy to read style isretained while the topics have been thoroughly revised to documentthe developments in the field.

"This is an important and comprehensive contribution to anessential area of scientific and public health enquiry and will beof use both as an introduction to pharmacoepidemiology and as areference source for academics, public health practitioners,regulatory agencies, the pharmaceutical industry and thelaw."
