Description: Dr. Gordis explains epidemiologic principles and methods in an accessible and enjoyable manner, using an approach perfected over his many years of teaching at the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health. Section I: The Epidemiologic Approach to Disease and Intervention demonstrates how the extent and severity of disease are measured in a community. It explores the natural history of disease...the evaluation of diagnostic and screening tests...and the design and use of randomized prevention and treatment trials. Section II: Using Epidemiology to Identify the Causes of Disease discusses the design of cohort, case-control, and other studies. Next, it shows how these studies are used to estimate the risks of disease, to derive causal inferences, and to assess the roles of environmental and genetic factors. Section III: Applying Epidemiology to Evaluation and Policy addresses the epidemiologic evaluation of health services and screening programs. It closes with a contemporary look at epidemiology's impact on public policy and a discussion of emerging ethical concerns. Book jacket.
