    Thumbs up Environmental Epidemiology. Understanding Public Health

    Environmental Epidemiology. Understanding Public Health
    by Paul Wilkinson




    Pages: 234
    Publisher: --
    Edition: 1st., 2006
    Language: English
    ISBN: 978-0335218424

    Description

    This book covers the principles of environmental epidemiology, drawing on examples of environmental concerns that have impacts from the local to the global. By the end of the book, the reader should be able to:

    1 Describe the main methodological issues in environmental epidemiology,
    specifically those relating to the investigation of the heath effects of pollution of
    air, water and land, and the health effects of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation.
    2 Assess and critically interpret scientific data relating to potential environmental
    hazards to health.
    3 Plan, conduct and interpret the initial investigation into a putative disease
    cluster.
    4 Describe the principles of geographical and time-series studies for the investigation
    of the health effects of environmental exposures, and the specific value
    of geographical information systems as an investigative tool.
    5 Outline the evidence about global climate change and the methods for assessing
    its potential health impacts.

    The topic area is large and this book cannot be comprehensive. The intention is rather to concentrate on methods and principles which may be applied to any environmental health hazard.
