About this Unit
Epidemiology is the analytical science concerned with the distribution and determinants of health-related states in populations aimed at the management of health problems. Epidemiology is not limited to the study of epidemics but is a method for measuring and managing physical, mental and social well-being in the living, working and recreational environments. The unit introduces a range of approaches for identifying and understanding risk factors for human health and disease, and guides the student in designing an investigation protocol aimed at assessing a specific health state within the student's own particular field of interest. The unit thus addresses a range of vocational needs relating to health studies while introducing the epidemiological analytical approach to risk assessment and research.
