Epidemiological research is an important tool for the improvement of preventive and curative healthcare. A valid study design, unbiased study conduct and proper interpretation of study results are essential, as these provide the foundation for evidence-based medicine. This book provides guidance on how to design, conduct and interpret human population-based medical research. It reflects the diversity in the field and will therefore discuss the methodology of etiological, diagnostic, prognostic and intervention research. This textbook is written for bachelor’s and master’s degree students receiving training in the biomedical sciences and for practitioners in the medical and allied professions. It will also serve as a reference manual for those with basic or advanced experience of epidemiology.

Textbook of Pharmacoepidemiology 3rd Edition

 Epidemiology, Pharmacology  Comments Off on Textbook of Pharmacoepidemiology 3rd Edition
Nov 192021
 

Pharmacoepidemiology originally arose from the union of the fields of clinical pharmacology and epidemiology. Pharmacoepidemiology studies the use of and the effects of medical products in large numbers of people and applies the methods of epidemiology to the content area of clinical pharmacology. This field represents the science underlying studies of the effects of medical products (such as drugs, biologicals, and devices) in real world use.

Strom’s Textbook of Pharmacoepidemiology meets the increasing need for people to be trained in the field. Designed to meet the need of students, this textbook offers an approach that focuses on the core of the discipline, providing a focused educational resource for students. The book is designed for students at all levels: upper-level undergraduates, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and others who are learning the field. Case examples feature in most chapters, and all chapters include key points and a list of further reading.

Fully revised and updated throughout, Textbook of Pharmacoepidemiology, 3rd edition is a useful introduction and resource for students of pharmacoepidemiology, both those enrolled in formal classes and those learning in “the real world,” who will respond to the challenges that they encounter.

Medical Epidemiology: Population Health and Effective Health Care, Fifth Edition (LANGE Basic Science) 5th Edition

 Epidemiology  Comments Off on Medical Epidemiology: Population Health and Effective Health Care, Fifth Edition (LANGE Basic Science) 5th Edition
Sep 122021
 

 

 

Understand the role of epidemiology in clinical medicine for the best patient outcomes possible

For nearly a quarter of a century, Medical Epidemiology has been the go-to text for understanding the principles and concepts of epidemiology and the relationship between population-based science and efficient patient care. It delivers the most current information on patterns of disease occurrence and risk factors – all clearly linked to clinical practice through the use of Health Scenarios in every chapter.

This edition of Medical Epidemiology has been completely rewritten to reflect the transformative changes in the manner in which epidemiologic methods are being utilized in today’s healthcare as well as the major shifts that have occurred at the policy level.

New chapters have been added on many timely topics, including global health, social determinants of health, health inequalities, comparative effectiveness, quality of care, variations in care, and implementation science. Increased information about evaluating, summarizing, and using evidence for improved patient care and outcomes gives this edition an even greater clinical focus.

Methods in Social Epidemiology 1st Edition

 Epidemiology  Comments Off on Methods in Social Epidemiology 1st Edition
Feb 082021
 

Social epidemiology is the study of how social interactions—social norms, laws, institutions, conventia, social conditions and behavior—affect the health of populations. This practical, comprehensive introduction to methods in social epidemiology is written by experts in the field. It is perfectly timed for the growth in interest among those in public health, community health, preventive medicine, sociology, political science, social work, and other areas of social research.

Topics covered are:

  • Introduction: Advancing Methods in Social Epidemiology
  • The History of Methods of Social Epidemilogy to 1965
  • Indicators of Socioeconomic Position
  • Measuring and Analyzing ‘Race’
  • Racism and Racial Discrimination
  • Measuring Poverty
  • Measuring Health Inequalities
  • A Conceptual Framework for Measuring Segregation and its Association with Population Outcomes
  • Measures of Residential Community Contexts
  • Using Census Data to Approximate Neighborhood Effects
  • Community-based Participatory Research: Rationale and Relevance for Social Epidemiology

  • Experimental Social Epidemiology: Controlled Community Trials
  • Propensity Score Matching Methods for Social Epidemiology
  • Natural Experiments and Instrumental Variable Analyses in Social Epidemiology
  • and Using Causal Diagrams to Understand Common Problems in Social Epidemiology.

“Publication of this highly informative textbook clearly reflects the coming of age of many social epidemiology methods, the importance of which rests on their potential contribution to significantly improving the effectiveness of the population-based approach to prevention. This book should be of great interest not only to more advanced epidemiology students but also to epidemiologists in general, particularly those concerned with health policy and the translation of epidemiologic findings into public health practice. The cause of achieving a ‘more complete’ epidemiology envisaged by the editors has been significantly advanced by this excellent textbook.”
Moyses Szklo, professor of epidemiology and editor-in-chief, American Journal of Epidemiology, Johns Hopkins University

“Social epidemiology is a comparatively new field of inquiry that seeks to describe and explain the social and geographic distribution of health and of the determinants of health. This book considers the major methodological challenges facing this important field. Its chapters, written by experts in a variety of disciplines, are most often authoritative, typically provocative, and often debatable, but always worth reading.”
Stephen W. Raudenbush, Lewis-Sebring Distinguished Service Professor, Department of Sociology, University of Chicago

“The roadmap for a new generation of social epidemiologists. The publication of this treatise is a significant event in the history of the discipline.”
Ichiro Kawachi, professor of social epidemiology, Department of Society, Human Development, and Health, Harvard University

Methods in Social Epidemiology not only illuminates the difficult questions that future generations of social epidemiologists must ask, it also identifies the paths they must boldly travel in the pursuit of answers, if this exciting interdisciplinary science is to realize its full potential. This beautifully edited volume appears at just the right moment to exert a profound influence on the field.”
Sherman A. James, Susan B. King Professor of Public Policy Studies, professor of Community and Family Medicine, professor of African-American Studies, Duke University
