APHA Scientific Session and Event Listing
Session: Cancer Epidemiology Session 1
3027.0: Monday, November 05, 2007: 8:30 AM-10:00 AM
Cancer Epidemiology Session 1
This informative session about cancer epidemiology will highlight the potential impact of changes in US Census ethnicity enumeration, temporal trends, birth and period effects and regional and socio-demographic variation on cancer rates. Presentations will also cover methods to analyze cancer incidence and the development of a cancer epidemiology curriculum.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the session, the participant (learner) will be able to: 1) Summarize the impact of change in Census enumeration practice on calculation of Hispanic and Non-Hispanic cancer rates over time; 2) Identify temporal changes in delay-adjusted cancer incidence associated with age, period, and cohort effects; 3) Identify geographic and demographic variations in childhood cancer incidence and mortality death rates; 4) Understand methods of county-level analyses using cancer incidence statistics; and 5) Learn tools to create a new curriculum for cancer epidemiology in special populations.
