Teaching Epidemiology: A guide for teachers in epidemiology, public health and clinical medicine

Teaching epidemiology requires skill and knowledge, combined with a clear teaching strategy and good pedagogic skills. The general advice is simple: if you are not an expert on a topic, try to enrich your background knowledge before you start teaching. The new edition of Teaching Epidemiology helps you to do this and, by providing world-expert teachers’ advice on how best to structure teaching, providing a unique insight into what has worked in their hands. This book will help you to tailor your own epidemiology teaching programme.
The fourth edition of this established text has been fully revised and updated, drawing on new research findings and recently developed methods including research technologies in genetic epidemiology and method development in relation to causal analysis. Analytical tools provide teachers in the field with the skills to guide students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Each chapter in Teaching Epidemiology comprises key concepts in epidemiology, subject specific methodologies, and disease specific issues, to provide expert assistance in the teaching of a wide range of epidemiology courses.

Dermatology and Dermatological Therapy of Pigmented Skins

It has been estimated that within 30 years the majority of persons living in the United States will be non-Caucasian. Already health care is being aimed toward diseases in these groups. This unique, comprehensive book has coverage that goes beyond the typical ethnic dermatology book that covers black skin and includes Asians, Hispanics, Native Americans, and Slavs. The author’s approach is to present dermatological disease in ethnic skin by following four general categories: common diseases, diseases rare in ethnic skin, diseases more commonly seen in ethnic skin, and diseases almost unique to ethnic skin. Written by experts, the book includes numerous high quality images to facilitate learning.

Immunopathology in Toxicology and Drug Development: Volume 2, Organ Systems

This book provides a fundamental understanding of immunopathology and immunopathologic processes, with particular attention to nonclinical toxicology studies. Chapters provide organ system–based summaries of spontaneous pathology and common responses to xenobiotics. A companion volume, Immunopathology in Toxicology and Drug Development: Volume 1, Immunobiology, Investigative Techniques, and Special Studies, offers an overview of general immunobiology, cells of the immune system, signaling and effector molecules, and immunopathology assays.
These informative and strategic books were created in response to the large segment of drug development that focuses on chronic diseases, many of which involve alterations to the immune system. Therapies that target these diseases commonly involve some form of immunomodulation. As a result, the two volumes of Immunopathology in Toxicology and Drug Development are critical texts for individuals involved in diverse aspects of drug development. Readers will acquire a thorough understanding of immunopathology for detection and accurate interpretation of pathologic effects of xenobiotics on the immune system.

Core Competencies for Psychiatric Practice: What Clinicians Need to Know (A Report of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neur

The practice of medicine has changed radically during the past few decades. PatientsAbetter informed than everAnow demand more of their physicians, viewing them as partners rather than revering them as sole decision-makers. In this environment, nonnegotiable core competenciesAever-evolving and measured by certification, recertification, and, more recently, maintenance of certificationAare more important than ever. Written from the perspective of those responsible for educating and certifying the next generations of psychiatrists, this groundbreaking compendium by distinguished contributors offersAfor the first timeAa concise look at the final product of the June 2001 Invitational Core Competencies Conference sponsored by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) as regards psychiatry (with a future comparable publication focusing on neurology). Divided into four parts, -Part I sets the stage for the current concept of physician AcompetenceA by presenting a brief history of medical competence, explaining the logic behind the development of the current competence outline. -Part II provides two different views of how to look at core competencies: how competence is defined by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and, based on some of their work, what is currently being done in the United States. -Part III discusses the organizing principlesAidentified in 1999 by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS)Athat frame all of our conversations about competence, as currently delineated for psychiatrists across the six core competency categories: Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, Interpersonal and Communications Skills, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, Professionalism, and Systems-Based Practice. Also presented are discussions of when in a physicianAs career these competencies should be assessed and what methodologies would be appropriate for that assessment. -Part IV discusses how the psychiatry core competencies are changing board certification and recertification. Also presented are informed predictions about the changes that medical school faculty and residency training directors will have to make and how practitioners will have to change behaviors to maintain their board certification. Concluding with an appendix outlining the six core competencies for psychiatry, this invaluable resource will both help psychiatric residents and their faculty and training directors understand the core competencies important to the ABPN and provide practitioners with a view of what will be contained in their upcoming maintenance of certification programs now being designed.
