"Managerial Epidemiology Concepts and Cases, Second Edition, provides a comprehensive introduction to epidemiology and explains how to use epidemiological concepts and tools to improve decisions about the management of health services. Throughout the book, basic principles are presented and then expanded upon with healthcare management applications and case studies. This edition features a new approach. Rather than separating epidemiology principles from application, it blends theory and application in each chapter."--BOOK JACKET.
