Applied Epidemiology

Theory to Practice

Second Edition

Edited by Ross C. Brownson and Diana B. Petitti

This text applies traditional epidemiologic methods for determining disease etiology to the "real-life" applications of public health and health services research. Brownson and Petittis much-needed book bridges the gap between theoretical epidemiology and public health practice, and covers a number of topics not addressed by other epidemiology texts. This second edition contains new chapters on Epidemiology and the Law by Rick Goodman (Law and Public Health Practice, 2002) and on Developing and Using Systematic Reviews, by Benedict Truman, Donna Teutsch, and Peter Briss (Briss of The Guide to Community Preventive Services, coming in January 2005, and Teutsch of Statistics in Public Health, 1998). All of the chapters, authored by authorities in the fields of epidemiology and public health, are fully revised and updated.
