Description
This text presents epidemiologic methods for studying injuries and evaluating interventions to prevent them to students and health care and safety professionals. Injuries can be classified under many descriptions, such as causal energy, agent of energy impact, and behavioral interventions. The formations of research questions and the choice of research methods may reveal or obscure patterns which can lead to remarkable reductions in injury. Relatively simple descriptive studies are helpful in targeting and improving injury control programs, while changeable factors are revealed only by more sophisticated analytic methods. The sources for such reliable, valid data and exemplary study designs are contained in this essential textbook. In addition, the difficulties in using rates and ratios, and applying epidemiologic methods when evaluating programs, laws, and regulations are covered. The use of economic concepts and policy analysis, topics not usually found in epidemiology texts, is also discussed and illustrated.
