Summary
"This is an accessible, easily readable and modern introduction to epidemiology for students of medicine and public health. It aims to give health professionals a good understanding of the methods and potential problems underlying epidemiological data and reports, but also provides a thorough introduction for would-be epidemiologists. The 'nuts and bolts' of epidemiology are embedded in the wider health perspective, and the concluding chapter explores future possibilities and emphasises the integration of the various strands of the discipline. The basic messages are reinforced through numerous examples and questions, with answers provided."--Jacket
