This new book provides a comprehensive introduction to occupational epidemiology. The text is straightforward and easy to understand; numerous examples help illustrate the concepts being presented. Topics discussed include a comparison between nonexperimental research and experimental research, control measures used in epidemiological research, data sources, epidemiological study designs, validity problems and generalization, procedures for writing a study protocol, and ethical aspects.
The book also looks at specific problems that may be encountered during the epidemiological study of cancer, coronary heart disease, chronic respiratory diseases, musculoskeletal disorders, and psychosocial problems. The book's final chapter provides an orientation of the interpretation of epidemiological studies and discusses reasons for false negative and false positive results.
Introduction to Occupational Epidemiology is an excellent book for researchers beginning epidemiological studies, students in occupational health fields, occupational health physicians, hygienists, sociologists, ergonomists, public health personnel, and decision makers in public and occupational health.
