This module is key in developing students' understanding of epidemiological methods as applied to public health and health promotion. Students will develop skills in describing and analysing epidemiological data, critically appraising study designs, and interpreting public health and health promotion issues through an understanding of epidemiological principles.

Cynnwys cwrs

The module enables students to develop an understanding of key epidemiological concepts relating to public health and health promotion. Course content includes: - The principles of epidemiology will be outlined, and students will develop an understanding of the strengths and limitations of different types of epidemiological data and evidence.

  • Epidemiological measures of health and disease: frequency (including incidence, prevalence, odds, rates); crude and specific rates; standardisation.

  • Epidemiological measures of health and disease: association and impact (risk ratio, rate ratio, odds ratio, risk and rate difference; attributable risk, and population attributable risk).

  • Epidemiological design (cross-sectional, cohort, case-study, intervention).

  • Interpreting the results of epidemiological studies and focussing on bias, confounding, chance, cause-effect relationship.

Threshold D+ to D-

Demonstrates some knowledge and understanding of relevant material for this module, and a limited use of it to answer the question set with little independent thinking. Limited use of material from the module and other relevant information to support arguments; most of the references are drawn on appropriately to support discussion and presented correctly in both text and references list. Limited awareness of conflicting arguments and ideas but no real attempt to address them; some limited ability to analyse and to critically evaluate material. A framework for the assignment is apparent but logical flow and coherence not always consistent with acceptable use of written language.
