The Development of Modern Epidemiology

Richard F. Heller

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the development of clinical epidemiology. It shows that the population approach, through epidemiological theory and practice, has found a ready and sustained application in clinical practice through clinical epidemiology and evidence-based medicine. The challenge to epidemiologists is to build on the success of clinical epidemiology, and build and institutionalize epidemiology as key to the development and implementation of an evidence base for population health.

Keywords:   clinical epidemiology, interaction, public health, population approach, clinical practice
