Epidemiology

Epidemiology is reviewing and investigating the patterns, root causes, and effects of health and disease conditions in defined populations. It is the basis of public health, and forms policy decisions and evidence-based practice by recognizing risk factors for disease and targets for preventive healthcare. Epidemiologists assist with study design, statistical analysis and collection of data, modify interpretation and dissemination of results. Epidemiology has helped to develop methods used in clinical research, public health studies, and, basic research in the biological sciences. Areas of epidemiological studies include outbreak investigation, disease causation, disease surveillance, biomonitoring, transmission, forensic epidemiology and screening, and comparisons of treatment effects such as in clinical trials.
