EPID 2670

Injury Epidemiology

Spring Term 2013











Course Description:

This course is designed to provide an introduction to and understanding of the epidemiology of injuries. The class will review the fundamentals underlying injury data and methods in injury studies. As the injury field is quite broad and time is limited, the review of specific injury categories will be limited to topics of global importance. Through instruction and practice, participants will become familiar with the importance of injury as a public health problem, injury data sources, injury surveillance systems, and injury research methods. Research issues related to the epidemiology of the selected injury topics will also be presented.
