Epidemiologia

Tecnologie emergenti e salute. Quale etica e quali regole negli studi epidemiologici sulla popolazione?

a cura di L. Mariani, R. Pegoraro

editore: Piccin-Nuova Libraria

pagine: 149

In questo volume, il Gruppo di ricerca "Tecnologie emergenti ed Etica: progetto di monitoraggio integrato per la salute della popolazione" ha cercato di delineare potenzialità e problematiche di tali tecnologie, sottolineando come nanotecnologie, tecnologie informatiche, genetica e bio-banche, neuroscienze e scienze cognitive, possano veramente integrarsi fino convergere, soprattutto nell'ambito della salute e dei sistemi sanitari. Si tratta di processi che passano dalle singole persone e dalle comunità, raccogliendo grandi quantità di dati di varia natura e sviluppando articolate interazioni, per poi prospettare ricadute importanti per le singole persone e l'intera collettività, specialmente in ambito sanitario. Tutto ciò chiede di precisare i valori e i principi etici che devono ispirare e sostenere tali processi, per individuare poi modalità e regole per una corretta gestione di tali potenzialità e problematiche.

Medical Epidemiology: Population Health and Effective Health Care

John R. Boring, John William Eley
e altri

editore: McGraw-Hill Professional

pagine: 288

Understand the role of epidemiology in clinical medicine for the best patient outcomes possible For nearly a quarter of a century, Medical Epidemiology has been the go-to text for understanding the principles and concepts of epidemiology and the relationship between population-based science and efficient patient care. It delivers the most current information on patterns of disease occurrence and risk factors - all clearly linked to clinical practice through the use of Health Scenarios in every chapter. This edition of Medical Epidemiology has been completely rewritten to reflect the transformative changes in the manner in which epidemiologic methods are being utilized in today's healthcare as well as the major shifts that have occurred at the policy level. New chapters have been added on many timely topics, including global health, social determinants of health, health inequalities, comparative effectiveness, quality of care, variations in care, and implementation science. Increased information about evaluating, summarizing, and using evidence for improved patient care and outcomes gives this edition an even greater clinical focus.

Oxford Handbook of Epidemiology for Clinicians

Bethan Davies, Gavin Shaddick
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 416

The Oxford Handbook of Epidemiology for Clinicians provides all the information required by students and junior doctors who need to understand and translate key epidemiological concepts into medical practice. Unlike standard textbooks in this area, the focus throughout is on clinical applications of epidemiological knowledge. Divided into four sections, the handbook begins with the basics of epidemiology in the clinic, moving on to the theories behind evidence-based practice, discussions of optimum methods and studies, and then ends by looking at the epidemiology of common diseases. The material is presented in a logical manner, from problems to the most appropriate solutions or tools to be applied. Interesting topics such as controversies in prevention intervention encourage discussion and thought, and the authors pose sensible and important questions throughout. This handbook is a must for all junior doctors, medical students, and clinicians who need to apply epidemiological concepts to day-to-day practice or who want a practical step-by-step guide to undertaking research, conducting reviews of evidence, or writing up publications.

Statistics Applied to Clinical Studies

Aeilko H. Zwinderman, Ton J. Cleophas

editore: Springer

pagine: 780

Thanks to the omnipresent computer, current statistics can include data files of many thousands of values, and can perform any exploratory analysis in less than seconds. This development, however fascinating, generally does not lead to simple results. We should not forget that clinical studies are, mostly, for confirming prior hypotheses based on sound arguments, and the simplest tests provide the best power and are adequate for such studies. In the past few years the authors of this 5th edition, as teachers and research supervisors in academic and top-clinical facilities, have been able to closely observe the latest developments in the field of clinical data analysis, and they have been able to assess their performance. In this 5th edition the 47 chapters of the previous edition have been maintained and upgraded according to the current state of the art, and 20 novel chapters have been added after strict selection of the most valuable and promising novel methods. The novel methods are explained using practical examples and step-by-step analyses readily accessible for non-mathematicians. All of the novel chapters have been internationally published by the authors in peer-reviewed journal, including the American Journal of Therapeutics, the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, The International journal of Clinical Pharmacology and therapeutics, and other journals, and permission is granted by all of them to use this material in the current book. We should add that the authors are well-qualified in their fields of knowledge. Professor Zwinderman is president-elect of the International Society of Biostatistics, and Professor Cleophas is past-president of the American College of Angiology. From their expertise they should be able to make adequate selections of modern methods for clinical data analysis for the benefit of physicians, students, and investigators. The authors, although from a different discipline, one clinician and one statistician, have been working and publishing together for over 10 years, and their research of statistical methodology can be characterized as a continued effort to demonstrate that statistics is not mathematics but rather a discipline at the interface of biology and mathematics. They firmly believe that any reader can benefit from this clinical approach to statistical data analysis.
