3419.0 Epidemiologic Methods

Monday, October 31, 2011: 4:30 PM
Public health research generates the evidence needed to inform public health practice. The quality and utility of such evidence is dependent on the methods used to design and analyze the research. As our topical and analytic knowledge evolves, we encounter scenarios in which conventional methods may not yield the most useful evidence. Consequently, this session aims to describe the application of innovative approaches for addressing public health questions with examples from diverse topics.
