... The 'Epidemic Intelligence Service' 'EIS' is a program of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC. It is the prototype for Field Epidemiology Training Programs FETP, which can now be found in numerous countries, reflecting the example set by this training model and the technical assistance provided by CDC in helping to set them up. The EIS program is now run through the CDC's Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology, and Laboratory Services CSELS, in the Office of Public Health Scientific Services OPHSS. Persons participating in the program, popularly called '"disease detectives"', are called "EIS officers" or EIS fellows by the CDC and have been dispatched to investigate possible epidemics, due to both natural and artificial causes, including anthrax, hantavirus, and West Nile virus in the United States and Ebola in Uganda and Zaire. Since the establishment of the EIS in 1951, over 3,000 EIS officers have been involved in response efforts in the US and worldwide. EIS officers have been involv...

Field Epidemiology involves the application of epidemiologic methods to unexpected health problems when a rapid, on-site investigation is necessary for timely intervention. Oxford University Press. Oxford University Press. 'Field Epidemiology Training Programs' 'FETPs' are two-year applied public health training programs modeled after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 's CDC Epidemic Intelligence Service EIS. The other 75 percent of their time is spent in field placements, where residents "learn by doing," by participating in outbreak investigations, helping to establish and evaluate disease surveillance systems, designing and conducting studies on problems of public health concern in their country, and training other healthcare workers. FETP residents have been involved in initiatives to prevent and control infectious diseases of global health importance, including polio, cholera, tuberculosis, HIV, malaria, and emerging infectious diseases of animal origin e.g., SARS, Nipah virus, and avia...

About 25 Minnesotans who were injected with a steroid from a Massachusetts specialty pharmacy are being evaluated for fungal meningitis in an outbreak that has killed five and sickened 30 in six states, Minnesota's top disease investigator said Friday. State epidemiologist Ruth Lynfield said the number of those being evaluated is likely to fluctuate as health officials and a group of Minnesota pain clinics track down about 700 patients who received spinal injections of the steroid linked to the outbreak. Two Minnesota clinic chains used the now-recalled product -- Medical Advanced Pain Specialists in Edina, Fridley, Shakopee and Maple Grove; and the Minnesota Surgery Center in Edina and Maple Grove. "There's a massive effort to contact all the patients," said Marsha Thiel, chief executive office...

PRESS CONTACT: David Swerdlow, M.D. CDC, National Center for Infectious Diseases 404 639-2206 In April 1998, the Thailand Ministry of Public Health identified an outbreak of botulism caused by consumption of contaminated home-canned bamboo shoots. Botulism is a rare, but serious, paralytic illness caused by a nerve toxin. Bacterial spores that survive an inadequate cooking and canning process grow and produce toxin in the low oxygen environment of the canned food. Although botulism has long been recognized and confirmed in the United States and other developed countries, this is the first confirmed outbreak of botulism in Thailand. Thailand's Field Epidemiology Training Program served a critical role in the investigation, con...

Common features of the methodology include data augmentation, latent variables, hidden Markov models, and extensive use of Markov chain Monte Carlo simulation in Bayesian hierarchical modelling. Specific applications include development of Bayesian estimation methods for point process models of transmission of recurrent infections: spread of Haemophilus influenzae type b Hib bacteria in a family environment, transmission of Streptococcus pneumoniae Pnc within families, and studies on the time course from Pnc infection until disease, modified by immunological responses, as well as the time course of a single outbreak of meningococcal epidemics in a military garrison. Specific aims in the project include development and applications of data analysis in multilevel transmission models, studies of Pnc transmission using stochastic simulation models, and assessment of underlying Pnc disease rates in surveillance systems with non-perfect sensitivity and specificity.

The use of epidemiological tools in health care management can be described as 'managerial epidemiology'. 2 The use epidemiological concepts and tools to improve decisions about the management of health services. 3 History Variations Application Differentiation References. Academics were encouraging use of epidemiological methods in health care management for quality improvement and planning before the term ‘managerial epidemiology’ was coined. An important distinction can be drawn between population epidemiology and clinical epidemiology. If the US health care system had fully evolved in a direction that entailed management of care for populations rather than patients, then the concepts, methods and perspectives drawn from population epidemiology would have been ideal tools for use by managers. 8 In each cycle of health reform, the utility of epidemiology in planning medical services for populations was recognized.

New York Times reporter Lawrence Altman recounts his experience in the mid-1960s with a measles immunization campaign in Upper Volta now Burkina Faso during his time with the Epidemic Intelligence Service of the CDC in a “ Doctor’s World ” perspective piece in the newspaper. Altman says that although the effort to expand the immunization campaign from a small field trial to a regional program “failed miserably,” the “lessons learned from these blunders led to a new program that wiped out smallpox, still the only human disease to have been eradicated from the planet.”. “In the 1960s, international aid programs were far less common than they are today,” Altman writes, adding, “Now, medical professionals are devoting careers to global health, and students commonly volunteer for overseas programs, sometimes for academic credit.

However, the relative differences between the age-standardized prevalence of diagnosed diabetes among persons who had a high school education or less and the referent category more than high school were significantly higher during 2008 than 2004. Absolute differences between the incidence rates of diagnosed diabetes in the groups with a high school education or less and the rate in the referent category more than high school were significant. Absolute differences between the incidence rates of diagnosed diabetes among the poor, near-poor, and middle income PIR categories and the incidence rate in the referent category high income, PIR ≥4.0 were also significantly different. In addition, the absolute disparities in the age-standardized incidence rate of diagnosed diabetes increased progressively with decreasing levels of education and PIR; these dispariti...

*  .. February 21, 2012 .. Leave a Comment » .. Incidence .. Share this: .. Like this: .. Rel
In medical contexts, incidence is most often used in its epidemiologic sense, ie, the number of new cases of a disease occurring over a defined period among persons at risk for that disease. When thus used, incidence may be expressed as a percentage new cases divided by number of persons at risk during the period or as a rate number of new cases divided by number of person-years at risk. Thus, it is perhaps best to use incidences, awkward as it may be, when reporting multiple incidence values as percentages and incidence rates when reporting such values as rates, eg, “at first follow-up, the incidences of falls resulting from frailty, neuromuscular disorders, or improper use of mobility devices were 15% 95% CI, 10%-20%, 12% 95% CI, 7%-17%, and 12% 5%-19%, respectively” or “the incidence rates for falls resulting from frailty, neuromuscular disorders, or improper use of mobility devices were 5.1, 6.3, and 4.6 per person-year, respectively.” Incidentally, these 2 examples report occurrences falls rather than di...

... NCI Response to "Cancer Undefeated" Article. cancer mortality rates.* The authors calculated a smaller decline in the cancer mortality rate than the National Cancer Institute NCI did last year. Using data from the National Center for Health Statistics NCHS, John C. Also, Bailar and Gornik age-adjusted the rates to the 1990 U.S. Because many more older people than younger people die of cancer, the unadjusted rates for all ages combined could rise even if the rates for each age group have gone down. The choice of a "standard population" for age adjustment -- the population age distribution in a particular census year -- is not dictated by any rigid scientific rules. For instance, NCHS age-adjusts its health statistics -- including cancer mortality rates -- to 1940 because that was the most recent census year when the agency published in 1943 a major comprehensive mortality analysis covering the years 1900 to 1940. For international comparisons, NCI and many other agencies use the "world standard population...

For example, if a population initially contains 1,000 non-diseased persons and 28 develop a condition over two years of observation, the incidence proportion is 28 cases per 1,000 persons per two years, i.e. The 'incidence rate' is the number of new cases per population at risk in a given time period. ISBN 9780781755641 ISBN 0781755646> When the denominator is the sum of the person-time of the at risk population, it is also known as the 'incidence density rate' or 'person-time incidence rate'. 1 In the same example as above, the incidence rate is 14 cases per 1000 person-years, because the incidence proportion 28 per 1,000 is divided by the number of years two. 2 Use of this measure implies the assumption that the incidence rate is constant over different periods of time, such that for an incidence rate of 14 per 1000 persons-years, 14 cases would...

(1/552) Does risk factor epidemiology put epidemiology at risk? Peering into the future.

The multiple cause black box paradigm of the current risk factor era in epidemiology is growing less serviceable. This single level paradigm is likely to be displaced. The signs are that the growing strength of molecular epidemiology on the one side, and of a global epidemiology based on information systems on the other, will come to dominate epidemiology and segregate it into separate disciplines. At the same time, the links with public health interests grow weaker. A multilevel ecoepidemiology has the potential to bind these strands together.  (+info)

(2/552) Disease patterns of the homeless in Tokyo.

In recent years, homelessness has been recognized as a growing urban social problem in various countries throughout the world. The health problems of the homeless are considerable. The purpose of this study was to elicit, with sociodemographic profiles, the disease patterns among Tokyo's homeless. The subjects were 1,938 men who stayed at a welfare institution from 1992 to 1996. Diagnosed diseases/injuries and sociodemographic profiles were analyzed. The disease patterns of the homeless were compared to those of the male general population. Of the subjects, 8.3% were admitted to the hospital; 64.0% received outpatient care. Their observed morbidity rates by disease category were greater than those of the male general population in both Japan and Tokyo. Comorbidity of alcoholic psychosis/alcohol-dependent syndrome to both liver disease and pulmonary tuberculosis were greater than the average (P < .01). Construction work brought a higher risk of pulmonary tuberculosis (odds ratio = 2.0) and dorsopathies (odds ratio = 1.4) than did other jobs (P < .05). Disease patterns among the homeless in Tokyo were characterized by alcoholic psychosis/alcohol-dependence syndrome; liver disease; pulmonary tuberculosis; diabetes mellitus; fractures, dislocations, sprains, strains; hypertension; and cerebrovascular disease. Although the sociodemographic backgrounds of Tokyo's homeless have become more diverse, the principal occupation of the homeless was unskilled daily construction work, which underlay the characteristics of their disease patterns.  (+info)

(3/552) Primary hip and knee replacement surgery: Ontario criteria for case selection and surgical priority.

OBJECTIVES: To develop, from simple clinical factors, criteria to identify appropriate patients for referral to a surgeon for consideration for arthroplasty, and to rank them in the queue once surgery is agreed. DESIGN: Delphi process, with a panel including orthopaedic surgeons, rheumatologists, general practitioners, epidemiologists, and physiotherapists, who rated 120 case scenarios for appropriateness and 42 for waiting list priority. Scenarios incorporated combinations of relevant clinical factors. It was assumed that queues should be organised not simply by chronology but by clinical and social impact of delayed surgery. The panel focused on information obtained from clinical histories, to ensure the utility of the guidelines in practice. Relevant high quality research evidence was limited. SETTING: Ontario, Canada. MAIN MEASURES: Appropriateness ratings on a 7-point scale, and urgency rankings on a 4-point scale keyed to specific waiting times. RESULTS: Despite incomplete evidence panellists agreed on ratings in 92.5% of appropriateness and 73.8% of urgency scenarios versus 15% and 18% agreement expected by chance, respectively. Statistically validated algorithms in decision tree form, which should permit rapid estimation of urgency or appropriateness in practice, were compiled by recursive partitioning. Rating patterns and algorithms were also used to make brief written guidelines on how clinical factors affect appropriateness and urgency of surgery. A summary score was provided for each case scenario; scenarios could then be matched to chart audit results, with scoring for quality management. CONCLUSIONS: These algorithms and criteria can be used by managers or practitioners to assess appropriateness of referral for hip or knee replacement and relative rankings of patients in the queue for surgery.  (+info)

(4/552) Prisoners of the proximate: loosening the constraints on epidemiology in an age of change.

"Modern epidemiology" has a primary orientation to the study of multiple risk factors for chronic noncommunicable diseases. If epidemiologists are to understand the determinants of population health in terms that extend beyond proximate, individual-level risk factors (and their biological mediators), they must learn to apply a social-ecologic systems perspective. The mind-set and methods of modern epidemiology entail the following four main constraints that limit engagement in issues of wider context: 1) a preoccupation with proximate risk factors; 2) a focus on individual-level versus population-level influences on health; 3) a typically modular (time-windowed) view of how individuals undergo changes in risk status (i.e., a life-stage vs. a life-course model of risk acquisition); and 4) the, as yet, unfamiliar challenge of scenario-based forecasting of health consequences of future, large-scale social and environmental changes. The evolution of the content and methods of epidemiology continues. Epidemiologists are gaining insights into the complex social and environmental systems that are the context for health and disease; thinking about population health in increasingly ecologic terms; developing dynamic, interactive, life-course models of disease risk acquisition; and extending their spatial-temporal frame of reference as they perceive the health risks posed by escalating human pressures on the wider environment. The constraints of "the proximate" upon epidemiology are thus loosening as the end of the century approaches.  (+info)

(5/552) The effects of local spatial structure on epidemiological invasions.

Predicting the likely success of invasions is vitally important in ecology and especially epidemiology. Whether an organism can successfully invade and persist in the short-term is highly dependent on the spatial correlations that develop in the early stages of invasion. By modelling the correlations between individuals, we are able to understand the role of spatial heterogeneity in invasion dynamics without the need for large-scale computer simulations. Here, a natural methodology is developed for modelling the behaviour of individuals in a fixed network. This formulation is applied to the spread of a disease through a structured network to determine invasion thresholds and some statistical properties of a single epidemic.  (+info)

(6/552) Food and nutrient exposures: what to consider when evaluating epidemiologic evidence.

Nutritional epidemiology is the science concerned with conducting research into the relation between diet and disease risk. The public has a great deal of interest in this issue. Much of that interest, however, is fueled by the publication of sensationalized, startling, and often contradictory health messages. Unfortunately, there is a great deal of confusion in both the scientific press and the public or lay press about the nature of nutritional epidemiology, its strengths, and its limitations. The purpose of this article is to discuss these strengths and limitations. It is hoped that clarification of these issues can help lead to a resolution of the research community's and lay public's misunderstandings about nutritional epidemiology research.  (+info)

(7/552) Causal criteria in nutritional epidemiology.

Making nutrition recommendations involves complex judgments about the balance between benefits and risks associated with a nutrient or food. Causal criteria are central features of such judgments but are not sufficient. Other scientific considerations include study designs, statistical tests, bias, confounding, and measurement issues. At a minimum, the set of criteria includes consistency, strength of association, dose response, plausibility, and temporality. The current practice, methods, and theory of causal inference permit flexibility in the choice of criteria, their relative priority, and the rules of inference assigned to them. Our approach is as follows. Consistency across study designs is compelling when the studies are of high quality and are not subject to biases. A statistically significant risk estimate with a > 20% increase or decrease in risk is considered a positive finding. A statistically significant linear or otherwise regularly increasing trend reinforces the judgment in favor of a recommendation. A plausible hypothesis likewise reinforces a recommendation, although the rules of inference for biological evidence are highly variable and depend on the situation. Temporality is, for nutrition recommendations, more a consideration of the extent to which a dietary factor affects disease onset or progression. Evidence supporting these criteria provides a strong basis for making a nutrition recommendation, given due consideration of the balance between presumed benefits and presumed harms. Recommendations should make clear their breadth of application; a narrow recommendation involves a single disease or condition whereas a broad recommendation involves all relevant diseases or conditions.  (+info)

(8/552) Diet and health risk: risk patterns and disease-specific associations.

Whether such epidemiologic descriptors as relative risk, dose response, and threshold points convey meaningful information is often the subject of debate. Thus, using these descriptors to juxtapose the many disease-specific effects of nutritional exposures becomes problematic. In this article it is argued that epidemiologic patterns of disease-exposure associations must be interpreted in light of the profound imprecision of exposure assessment that characterizes nutritional epidemiology. In general, this imprecision leads to substantial attenuation of disease-exposure associations, such that relative risk, dose response, and the extent to which there are thresholds in disease-exposure associations can be seriously underestimated. Linking disease-specific relative risks, especially when derived from different studies with different methods of assessing exposure, is made increasingly difficult. The most critical tasks for lessening bias in these epidemiologic descriptors are first, to lessen imprecision in measuring exposures, and second, to adjust association estimates for attenuation due to measurement imprecision.  (+info)

I need some advice on a career choice - I want to study either epidemiology or pharmaceuticals in the USA?


I read somewhere that epidemiology requires going to Medical school even if I want to do research. And pharmaceuticals obviously requires Pharmacy school. The problem is, I don't want to go to medical school... Is it possible to get a job in the research field without going to Medical school? Also, I am aware that Pharmaceuticals is a higher paying job than epidemiology ... But I want to choose whatever I can finish faster.
----------

What Tink said.

Epidemiology is really maths heavy, very little actual health and lots of stats. Pharmacy is the biochemistry of drugs, but also how they interact with the body.

If you want to go into research then decide exactly what kind of research you want to do. A lot of pharmaceutical research uses purely chemists, while epidemiology would use just statisticians.


How does cancer epidemiology differ from cancer medicine?


What is cancer epidemiology?
----------

Epidemiology in this context refers to cancer research. Cancer epidemiologists don't treat cancer patients (as oncologists do), we study the associations of potential exposures with the risk of developing cancer, or the probability of dying from a particular cancer. Where oncologists work with a single patient, we study these possible effects in populations. Sometimes it's 100 people, sometimes it's hundreds of thousands of people. Ultimately, cancer epidemiology is just another application of epidemiologic research principals to a particular disease. Cardiovascular epidemiologists, nutritional epidemiologists, and enivronmental epidemiologists generally use the same basic principals in order to research the likelihood of developing particular diseases as they pertain to certain exposures.

If you would like a decent book on the topic, see "Cancer Epidemiology" by Hans Olav-Adami. Quite a decent text. For an excellent introduction to epidemiology, see "Epidemiology" by Leon Gordis, or the comprehensive text, "Modern Epidemiology" by Kenneth Rothman.

Note - with regard to the other answer that was given, the results of epidemiologic research need replication and take *time* in order to affect public health policy. Mind you, much of cancer research surrounds what affects the likelihood of developing cancer (e.g., smoking), and much less focuses on efficacy of treatment. While the results of our research can eventually affect how cancer patients are treated, it isn't as if the result of a single study will change policy the next day. A single study can cost millions, even tens of millions, of dollars and in some cases can last for 10+ years.


There are very few positive things that come from war, but in the case of infectious disease epidemiology?


There are very few positive things that come from war, but in the case of infectious disease epidemiology, how have we benefited from past wars and past learning?
----------

Through taking notice of what was going on in past wars, even documenting disease we have learned how to prevent or avoid potential situations that may cause soliders to contract a disease.  For example there is now strict monitoring of drinking water purity, the inspection of food sources and supplies, maintainence of field camp sanitation, and insect vector control programs. Vaccinations are also a big part of preventitive medicince to avoid diseases such as typhoid.  We have also discovered a lot more about specific diseases, how they infect humans, their sources, their life cycles and how we can disrupt that.


How does my response to this question sound?


How could the information learned about a disease's epidemiology be used to protect public health? What kind of epidemiological information would a public health official want to know about a situation? What might happen if the wrong conclusions were drawn about the etiology of a disease?

Information learned about a disease's epidemiology will play a vital role in the safety of the public health. For example, discovering the extreme contagiousness of a disease like MRSA would help the healthcare professionals know how to handle the infected patient to protect others from this disease. A public health official would want to know how contagious the disease is, the prognosis of the disease, and the signs and symptoms of the disease. A wrong conclusion about the etiology of a disease can be a life-threatening situation. If there was a wrong conclusion about the cause of a disease, the wrong precautions would take place to prevent the disease from infecting the public.
----------

Fairly good structure to the answer, though I believe you need to include some specific examples on the "kind of epidemiological information X would want to know".

Include things like the prevalence of symptoms, as the more cases studied allows epidemiology shine as most disease process create a multitude of symptoms which can show from sublinical to death depending on the individual.  So knowing the range of these symptoms is vitally important.

Further, every physician or 'health official' recognizes symptology differently.  Some may be missed, so the more informed they are the better they are at recognizing what disease they are dealing with,.. quicker,.. and are more able to treat such.

They would want to know the prevalence of the disease in the general population (including contagious factors), the lethality, the range of symptoms as aforementioned, location, and response to specific treatments.

If the wrong conclusions were formed about the etiology then the treatment wouldn't be so much effected but the prevention of the spread of the disease would be nullified and due to lack or incorrect information would lead to unnecessary spread of the particular disease process.

Overall your answer is very good, just try to to be a little more specific in your examples to address the question with some exactness.
