Epidemiological Research: Terms and Concepts, Hardback Book

Epidemiological Research: Terms and Concepts Hardback


The book is organized so as to address in separate sections first the preparatory topics of medicine (clinical and epidemiological), science in general, and statistics (mathematical); then topics of epidemiological research proper; and, finally, topics of `meta-epidemiological' clinical research.

In those two main sections, a further grouping is based on the distraction between objects and methods of study.

In this framework, the particular topics are addressed both descriptively and quasi-prescriptively, commonly with a number of explicatory annotations. This book is intended to serve as a handbook for whomever is, in whatever way, concerned with epidemiological or `meta-epidemiological' clinical research.

But besides this, it is also intended to serve as a textbook for students in introductory courses on `epidemiological' research - to which end there is a suggested hierarchy of the concepts that might reasonably be covered.
