Epidemiology for Public Health Practice 6th Edition PDF EBOOK EPUB

Epidemiology for Public Health Practice is a best-selling text offering comprehensive coverage of all the major topics in introductory epidemiology and alignment to the core competencies in epidemiology for graduate and undergraduate courses. With extensive treatment of the heart of epidemiology―from study designs to descriptive epidemiology to quantitative measures―this reader-friendly text is accessible and interesting to a wide range of beginning students in all health-related disciplines. A unique focus is given to real-world applications of epidemiology and the development of skills that students can apply in subsequent course work and in the field. Significantly updated, the new Sixth Edition offers: • New chapter on epidemiology and policy • Increased emphasis on health disparities, genetic epidemiology, and current epidemics (e.g., the opioid epidemic, cannabis misuse, and gun violence) • Coverage of data acquisition (big data), wearable technology for collecting health data, climate change, and more. • Unique chapters on psychosocial epidemiology, environmental and occupation health, molecular and genetic epidemiology, and career options • Refreshed examples, updated tables and figures throughout the text.
