Population Health Research: Linking Theory and Methods offers a comprehensive introduction to the methodological basis of population health research, and a critical assessment of theoretical issues affecting the quality of research on health and behaviour.
In research into the many factors that shape human health or illness, the traditional emphasis has been on experimental design and the statistical effects of specific factors. This book provides evidence of the limitations of these traditional approaches for research into the complex forces affecting health, health-related behaviour and the effectiveness of health services. Appropriate analytical models as mechanisms for building theoretical knowledge are an important theme.
With its multidisciplinary approach and innovative content, Population Health Research will be a valuable text for research education in the health sciences, and essential reading for researchers, academics and postgraduates in public health, health research, epidemiology and medical sociology.
