9780199331246: Epidemiology Matters: A New Introduction to Methodological Foundations

Epidemiology Matters offers a new approach to understanding and identifying the causes of disease -- and with it, how to prevent disease and improve human health. Utilizing visual explanations and examples, this text provides an accessible, step-by-step introduction to the fundamentals of epidemiologic study, from design to analysis.

Across fourteen chapters, Epidemiology Matters teaches the individual competencies that underlie the conduct of an epidemiologic study: identifying populations; measuring exposures and health indicators; taking a sample; estimating associations between exposures and health indicators; assessing evidence for causes working together; assessing internal and external validity of results.

With its consequentialist approach -- designing epidemiologic studies that aim to inform our understanding, and therefore improve public health -- Epidemiology Matters is an introductory text for the next generation of students in medicine and public health.

About the Author:


Katherine M. Keyes, PhD, is Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at Columbia University. Her research focuses on life course epidemiology with particular attention to psychiatric disorders, including cross-generational cohort effects on substance use, mental health, and chronic disease. She has particular expertise in the development and application of novel epidemiological methods, and in the development of epidemiological theory to measure and elucidate the drivers of population health.

Sandro Galea, MD, DrPH, is Chair of the Department of Epidemiology at Columbia University. His work focuses on the social production of health of urban populations, innovative cells-to-society approaches to population health, and advancing a consequentialist approach to epidemiology in the service of population health. He is a past president of the Society for Epidemiologic Research and an elected member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies of Science.

Review:


"An excellent overview of the uses of epidemiological methods to investigate the causal pathway to disease. The step-by-step approach to epidemiology methods is a unique contribution. Epidemiology remains the key to successful prevention of disease." --Lewis Kuller, MD, DrPH, Professor of Epidemiology, University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health


"A clear introduction to central epidemiologic concepts using a step-by-step approach. This book will be useful to students who take only one course in epidemiology, as well as to scholars who decide to pursue epidemiology in more depth." -- American Journal of Epidemiology


"This is a unique addition to the ever-expanding library of introductory epidemiology books. The material is easily accessible to beginners, and the consequentialist approach breathes new life into the field. Weighted Numerical Score: 100 - 5 Stars!" --Doody's Health Sciences Review
