Overview

Worldwide health care problems are a hot, growing application in Operations Research. Along with a quickly growing field is an active community of Medical OR and Risk Analysis researchers. Tony Cox is one of the leading research scholars in the field of Risk Heath Risk. His work on health risk modeling will be synthesized along with the work of others on modeling human health risks. The monograph will cover a range of modeling and methodological issues including environmental, experimental, simulation, and mathematical modeling approaches.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"This book grew out of an effort to salvage a potentially useful idea for greatly simplifying traditional quantitative risk assessments of the human health consequences of using antibiotics in food animals. … It is truly a pioneering study in this previously underdeveloped area of applied risk assessment. This book should be highly instructive to those interested in attempting to model potential human risks of antimicrobial resistance from complex food exposure pathways. … The book is a tremendous reference resource … ." (T. Postelnicu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1095 (21), 2006)

"This extensively treated application clarifies health risk analysis methods to the reader. It is very well readable. ... The book clearly demonstrates the practical power of data-driven quantitative risk assessment in improving modeling of human health risks created and prevented by antibiotics ... . I do recommend this book." (V. de Valk, Kwantitatieve Methoden, April, 2007)
