MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

This book is by a single author – someone who, after medical school, has devoted half-a-century of full-time effort to ever better understand both clinical and community medicine and the research that is needed to produce the scientific knowledge-base of these.

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 and a handbook for whomever is, in whatever way, concerned with epidemiological or ‘meta-epidemiological’ clinical research. But besides, it is intended to serve as a textbook for the students in introductory courses on ‘epidemiological’ research – to which end there is a suggested hierarchy of the concepts that might reasonably be covered.


Feature:

The author is uniquely qualified for scholarly delineation – both descriptive and quasi-prescriptive – of the terms and concepts of research to produce the scientific knowledge-base for clinical and community medicine.

The book is unique in its organization and wealth of explicatory annotations.

Related to the book’s unique organization is its suggested hierarchy of the concepts’ coverage in an introductory course on ‘epidemiological’ research.
