NURS 702 - Epidemiology (3)

This course provides the opportunity to explore the causes of health and disease through systematic and rigorous identification of patterns in populations, formulating causal hypotheses and testing those hypotheses by making group comparisons. Epidemiology is the basic science of public health, and as such, provides the scientific underpinnings for understanding disease patterns so that effective interventions can be proposed, implemented and evaluated.
