Teaching epidemiology requires skill and knowledge, combined with a clear teaching strategy and good pedagogic skills. The general advice is simple: if you are not an expert on a topic, try to enrich your background knowledge before you start teaching. Teaching Epidemiology, third edition helps you to do this, and by providing the world-expert teacher’s advice on how best to structure teaching gives a unique insight in to what has worked in their hands. The book will help you plan your own tailored teaching program.
The book is a guide to new teachers in the field at two levels; those teaching basic courses for undergraduates, and those teaching more advanced courses for students at postgraduate level. Each chapter provides key concepts and a list of key references. Subject specific methodology and disease specific issues (from cancer to genetic epidemiology) are dealt with in details. There is also a focused chapter on the principles and practice of computer-assisted learning.

The Case-control method: design and applications was written by Haroutune K. Armenian,MD, DrPH. He is a Professor Emeritus in Residence School of Public Health, University of California, LA , Bloomburg School of Public Health, The Johns Hopkins University, and President, American University of Armenia. This book was published by Oxford University Press in 2009.
Environmental epidemiology is the study of the environmental causes of disease in populations and how these risks vary in relation to intensity and duration of exposure and other factors like genetic susceptibility. As such, it is the basic science upon which governmental safety standards and compensation policies for environmental and occupational exposure are based. Profusely illustrated with examples from the epidemiologic literature on ionizing radiation and air pollution, this text provides a systematic treatment of the statistical challenges that arise in environmental health studies and the use of epidemiologic data in formulating public policy, at a level suitable for graduate students and epidemiologic researchers.
After a general overview of study design and statistical methods for epidemiology generally, the book goes on to address the problems that are unique to environmental health studies, special-purpose designs like two-phase case-control studies and countermatching, statistical methods for modeling exposure-time-response relationships, longitudinal and time-series studies, spatial and ecologic methods, exposure measurement error, interactions, and mechanistic models. It also discusses studies aimed at evaluating the public health benefits of interventions to improve the environment, the use of epidemiologic data to establish environmental safety standards and compensation policy, and concludes with emerging problems in reproductive epidemiology, natural and man-made disasters like global warming, and the global burden of environmentally caused disease. No other book provides such a broad perspective on the methodological challenges in this field at a level accessible to both epidemiologists and statisticians.
- Comprehensive treatment of topics not generally covered in epidemiology texts
- Extensive examples from the literature
- Mathematical presentation at a level suitable for graduate students in epidemiology and biostatistics
- Topical and timely work in a growing field
- Author is a highly regarded researcher and expositor
About the Author(s)
Dr. Thomas is Professor of Preventive Medicine, Director of the Biostatistics Division, and Verna R. Richter Chair in Cancer Research at the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine. He received his undergraduate degree from Haverford College, an M.S. in Mathematics from Stanford University, and a Ph.D. in Epidemiology and Biostatistics from McGill University in 1976. His primary research interest has been in the development of statistical methods in epidemiology, both environmental and genetic. He was a member of President Clinton’s Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments, as well as the National Academy of Sciences Committee on the Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation (BEIR V), and radiation advisory committees for other governmental agencies. Dr. Thomas has many publications in statistical genetics, including the textbook Statistical Methods in Genetic Epidemiology (OUP, 2004), and is a past President of the International Genetic Epidiology Society.
This projections were prepared by the Analysis and Advocacy Project in Thailand, in collaboration with the Thai Working Group on HIV/AIDS Projections, and with funding support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The present projections are an update of the projections prepared in 2000. While the projections were culculated with a model similar to that used in 2000, two new components including MSM and ART were added. These updated projections were prepared to support of the development of the Thailand 10th National AIDS Plan.
Insummary, the state of the HIV epidemic in 2008 is:
- 1,115,000 adults have been infected with HIV in Thailand since the start of the epidemic.
- 585,800 of these people have subsequently died of AIDS since the beginning of the epidemic.
- 532,500 people are currently living with HIV.
- 12,800 new infections will occur in the year 2008.
- 48,000 people will develop serious illness in the year 2008.
It needs to be noted that the number of new infections projected was based on the assumption that risk behaviors and STI rates remain unchanged from 2005 onwards. If changes in levels of risk behaviors or STI occur, the number of new infections will increase or decrease accordingly. More details of this book, please come to the College library.
10 health care system indicators and 10 health issues in Thailand have been described in this book. http://www.scribd.com/doc/20049835/Thai-Health-2009 Check it out at the College library!
