A Brief Overview of Epidemiology, Evidence-based Medicine and Public Health 6th Edition


This sixth-year book provides students and health practitioners with the requisite basic resources to study, practice, and teach epidemiology and prevention in today’s world.

The first part, Epidemiology, outlines the basic concepts and theoretical foundations behind the work on population health, including a new chapter on genetic epidemiology.

Intrinsically, the implementation of the latest and best clinical evidence for care at a person and community levels, including guidance on how to apply the concepts of EBM in your own practice, has been related to public epidemiology and wellbeing and introduced into a brand new second segment, Evidence-based Medicine.

The third segment, ‘Public Health,’ introduces students to the practice of public health including disease prevention, length of life, disparity reduction, and global health prevention strategies and tools.

This book was made to keep every aspect of medicinal health in good condition for Medical students to analyze, study, and practice these provided experiments for a promising future career.
