Essential Readings In Infectious Disease Epidemiology (Essential Public Health)

Essential Readings In Infectious Disease Epidemiology (Essential Public Health) Lowest new price: $79.13
Lowest used price: $47.65
List price: $138.95
Author: Manya Magnus
Brand: Brand: Jones Bartlett Learning

Essential Readings in Infectious Disease Epidemiology is a collection of readings and practice exercises designed to complement the methods training presented in the main text, Essentials of Infectious Disease Epidemiology. Where the parent text focuses on methods, this book provides actual readings and examples on which to practice new skills. It may also be used in tandem with any introductory or intermediate epidemiology text to give the student critical skills in reading and interpretation. The Readings continues to boil down tough concepts in infectious disease epidemiology, stripping away jargon and replacing it with key concepts that may be applied to more advanced work in the classroom or in the field. The book is uniquely organized around the themes of ID epidemiology (rather than by chronology) and mirrors the structure of the main textbook to create a more engaging experience for the reader. Each excerpt includes an introduction to the historic or cultural context; a description of the “take-home” message of the passage, excerpt, or graph. Suggested study questions or practice problems are also included.

Aboriginal Health in Canada: Historical, Cultural, and Epidemiological Perspectives

Aboriginal Health in Canada: Historical, Cultural, and Epidemiological Perspectives Lowest new price: $29.99
Lowest used price: $10.00
List price: $40.95
Author: James Waldram
Brand: Brand: University of Toronto Press, Scholarly Publishing Division

Numerous studies, inquiries, and statistics accumulated over the years have demonstrated the poor health status of Aboriginal peoples relative to the Canadian population in general. Aboriginal Health in Canada is about the complex web of physiological, psychological, spiritual, historical, sociological, cultural, economic, and environmental factors that contribute to health and disease patterns among the Aboriginal peoples of Canada.



The authors explore the evidence for changes in patterns of health and disease prior to and since European contact, up to the present. They discuss medical systems and the place of medicine within various Aboriginal cultures and trace the relationship between politics and the organization of health services for Aboriginal people. They also examine popular explanations for Aboriginal health patterns today, and emphasize the need to understand both the historical-cultural context of health issues, as well as the circumstances that give rise to variation in health problems and healing strategies in Aboriginal communities across the country. An overview of Aboriginal peoples in Canada provides a very general background for the non-specialist. Finally, contemporary Aboriginal healing traditions, the issue of self-determination and health care, and current trends in Aboriginal health issues are examined.
