The new, completely revised, and updated edition of this classic text --sponsored by the International Epidemiological Association (IEA) and previously edited by John Last-- remains the definitive dictionary in epidemiology worldwide. In fact, with contributions from over 220 epidemiologists and other users of epidemiology from around the globe, it is more than a dictionary: it includes explanations and comments on both core epidemiologic terms and on other scientific terms relevant to all professionals in clinical medicine and public health, as well as to professionals in the other health, life, and social sciences. Anyone seeking clarity on epidemiologic and methodological definitions important to human health will find it here. On the eve of a field trip to a foreign land, a health scientist remarked that if he had to limit his professional library to one volume on epidemiology, this would be the book he would choose.

A Dictionary of Epidemiology

There have been many definitions of epidemiology. In the past 50 years or so, the definition has broadened from concern with communicable disease epidemics to take in all phenomena related to health in populations.

Dictionary making never ends because languages are always changing. Widely used throughout the world, this book will continue to serve as the standard English-language dictionary of epidemiology and many from related fields such as biostatistics, infectious disease control, health promotion, genetics, clinical epidemiology, health economics, and medical ethics. The definitions are clear and concise, but there is space for some brief essays and discussions of the provenance of important terms. Sponsored by the International Epidemiological Association, the dictionary represents the consensus of epidemiologists in many different countries. All the definitions were reviewed repeatedly by an international network of contributors from every major branch of epidemiology. They are authoritative without being authoritarian. The Fourth Edition contains well over 150 new entries anad substantial revisions of about the same number of definitions, plus a dozen new illustrations. Many of the new terms relate to methods used in environmental and clinical epidemiology.

Die Pharmakoepidemiologie ist im Bereich der Gesundheitswissenschaften eine der jüngsten Disziplinen. Sie verbindet die Wissenschaftsbereiche Pharmakologie, klinische Medizin, Epidemiologie und Biostatistik und ist dadurch zur wissenschaftlichen Basis der Praxis der Arzneimittelsicherheit geworden. Das vorliegende englisch-deutsche Wörterbuch enthält die wichtigsten Termini (ca. 500), Definitionen und Konzepte des epidemiologischen Themenspektrums und richtet sich an alle, die Gesundheitsforschung betreiben oder sich mit ihren Ergebnissen auseinandersetzen. Das Buch will dazu beitragen, den Gebrauch von fachspezifischen Termini im Bereich Pharmakoepidemiologie international zu standardisieren. Zur Definition von Begriffen ist jeweils die Originalliteratur herangezogen worden. Die Fundstelle ist für jeden Terminus angegeben und soll dem Benutzer so die Möglichkeit geben, sich bei Bedarf auch umfassender mit einem Begriff und seinem Umfeld auseinandersetzen zu können.

The book is organized so as to address in separate sections first the preparatory topics of medicine (clinical and epidemiological), science in general, and statistics (mathematical); then topics of epidemiological research proper; and, finally, topics of ‘meta-epidemiological’ clinical research. In those two main sections, a further grouping is based on the distraction between objects and methods of study. In this framework, the particular topics are addressed both descriptively and quasi-prescriptively, commonly with a number of explicatory annotations. This book is intended to serve as a handbook for whomever is, in whatever way, concerned with epidemiological or ‘meta-epidemiological’ clinical research. But besides this, it is also intended to serve as a textbook for students in introductory courses on ‘epidemiological’ research – to which end there is a suggested hierarchy of the concepts that might reasonably be covered.

A comprehensive, alphabetized dictionary of terms used in veterinary epidemiology, this book is an expanded translation of the only dictionary of veterinary epidemiology in the world, Glossaire d'epidemiologie animale. An invaluable reference and teaching tool for anyone with an interest in animal health issues, the book will enhance communication on the numerous issues arising with the new animal-based industries and expanded markets for animal products. With this in mind, the editors have extended the scope of the book beyond strictly epidemiologic terms to include the basic nomenclature of economics and biostatistics, two important disciplines associated with epidemiology and animal health. The dictionary's international perspective should make it particularly useful as population-based problem solving becomes a global concern.
