Features: The book describes epidemiology concepts and how to apply this knowledge in practical research. It provides in-depth information on the development of research designs, the implementation of a project, the analysis of data through statistics, and the presentation of study outcomes. The book covers a wide variety of topics, including disease prevention, infectious diseases, genetically linked diseases, and environmental epidemiology.
Assessment: This is an excellent resource for advanced practice nursing graduate students as well as practicing advanced practice nurses. The information is presented in a clear and concise manner. Multiple tables, graphs, and diagrams support the information. Each chapter presents up-to-date information organized by topics, and includes key points, critical questions, and a variety of supporting resources and references.
