Epidemiology and Classification

Epidemiology is the study and analysis of the patterns, causes, and effects of health and disease conditions in a defined population. It is a cornerstone of public health, and shapes policy decisions and evidence-based practice by identifying disease risk factors and goals of preventive health care. Epidemiologists’ help with study design, collection and statistical analysis of data, revise interpretation and dissemination of results (including peer reviews and occasional systematic reviews). Epidemiology has helped develop the methodology used in clinical research, public health studies, and, to a lesser extent, basic research in the biological sciences. Major areas of epidemiological study include disease causation, transmission, outbreak investigation, disease surveillance, forensic epidemiology and comparison of treatment effects such as screening, bio surveillance, and clinical trials. Epidemiologists rely on other scientific disciplines such as biology to better understand disease processes, statistics to make efficient use of data and draw appropriate conclusions, social sciences to better understand near and distant causes and rely on engineering for risk assessment.
