Teaching chronic respiratory disease epidemiology
The development of respiratory disease epidemiology is relatively recent compared to other disease-oriented epidemiologies, such as those devoted to infectious diseases, cancer, or cardiovascular diseases. It should therefore not be surprising that respiratory disease epidemiology, with few exceptions, is not yet covered in most teaching programmes. This chapter aims to facilitate the establishment of introductory courses and sessions of respiratory epidemiology in a variety of teaching contexts. Because modern epidemiology is largely focused on cancer and cardiovascular diseases, it is necessary to understand the particularities of respiratory epidemiology. The chapter primarily refers to chronic obstructive respiratory disease and asthma.
