Infectious Disease Epidemiology provides a concise reference for practicing epidemiologists, and provides trainee readers with a thorough understanding of basic the concepts which are critical to understanding specialist areas of infectious disease epidemiology.
Divided into two sections, part one of the book covers a comprehensive list of methods relevant to the study of infectious disease epidemiology, organised in order of increasing complexity, from a general introduction, to subjects such as mathematical modelling and sero-epidemiology. Part two addresses major infectious diseases that are of global significance due to their current burden or their potential for causing morbidity and mortality. The examples have been selected and grouped into chapters based on the route of transmission.
This practical guide will be essential reading for postgraduate students in infectious disease epidemiology, health protection trainees.
