Pharmacoepidemiology

Front Cover
J. Wiley, 1994 - Medical - 741 pages
Not intended as a textbook of adverse drug reactions but rather as a way to elucidate the methods of investigating adverse drug reactions as well as other questions of drug effects. Section one gives an introduction to the field & presents basic scientific principles of clinical epidemiology. In this edition a chapter has been added on analogous basic principles of clinical pharmacology. A presentation of multiple different perspectives on clinical epidemiology can be found in the second section. Due to major new methodological developments in the field, sections three & four have had new chapters added & others removed. The first three sections will be of interest to the neophyte while sections two through four will appeal to those with some background who want a more in-depth view of the field.
