Field of medicine: Epidemiology.
Format: Softcover book.
Audience: Medical students.
Purpose: This textbook of basic epidemiology is for those who need to read, understand, and use epidemiologic studies rather than for those actually doing such studies.
Content: The first edition of this book was published only 3 years ago; this new edition includes some revisions and two new chapters, on genetic epidemiology and clinical decision making. All of the traditional topics of basic epidemiology are covered. However, rather than providing a theoretical discussion of study designs and problems, the authors use “patient profiles” to demonstrate the use of epidemiology in everyday clinical practice.
