5111.0 Social Epidemiology

Wednesday, November 7, 2007: 12:30 PM
This interesting session will focus on social epidemiology. A presentation on the relationship between social capital and health status will be followed by a study of the effect of physical and social limitations on depression. Other presentations will discuss the enrolment of hard-to-reach populations, the possible effects of unemployment and income inequalities on suicide mortality and the social consequences of possible pandemic influenza interventions.
Session Objectives: At the conclusion of the session, the participant (learner) in this session will be able to: 1) Articulate the methodological and practical significance of the endogeneity of social capital and health; 2) Understand the relationships between an individualís physical activity and social activity limitation and his/her depression; 3) Evaluate the possible consequences of failure to retain the hard-to-reach in longitudinal studies; 4) To understand the associations of suicide mortality with unemployment and income inequalities in Taiwan; and 5) Identify health and social consequences of non-pharmaceutical public health interventions to contain pandemic flu.
