Written for those who are familiar with the basic strategies of
analytic epidemiology, Epidemiology: Beyond the Basics takes
readers through a more rigorous discussion of key epidemiologic
concepts and methods such as study design, measures of association,
research assessment, and more. With real-life examples throughout,
the book avoids complex statistical formulations and is an
invaluable resource for intermediate students and practicing
epidemiologists who wish to expand their knowledge of epidemiology
and its role in the medical and public health sciences. The Fourth
Edition offers updated examples and new exercises in each chapter
as well as many new discussions of topics such as: prevalence
ratios vs. odds ratios; inverse probability weighting as a
technique for correcting for selection bias; regression to the mean
as a source of confounding (Glymour bias); mediation analysis;
correction for competing causes in multivariate analysis; the
extension of the Cox model for the analysis of nested case-control
studies; multilevel analysis; translational epidemiology and much
more. This edition also offers an updated package of instructor
materials including instructor's manual, PowerPoint lecture slides,
and a test bank.
