Occupational Medicine

«This excellently written book packs in a lot of material in just under 400 pages. The authors have done a great job in focusing on the clinical relevance of the material and even include helpful tips on communicating bad prognoses to patients... It is an excellent aide-memoire and refresher.»

Journal of Public Health

«More than ever clinicians need to understand evidence. This handbook is an invaluable means for grasping the principles of epidemiology as applied to everyday clinical practice. It also makes the case for integrating evidence-based prevention into our work, and includes an excellent guide to the epidemiology of diseases.»

From the Foreward by Professor the Lord Darzi of Denham PC, KBE

«As a hybrid between an introduction to epidemiology and a quick reference for use in clinical decision-making, this book provides a great deal of information in little space. As a quick reference for use in daily practice, it is unique.»
