Epidemiology for Health Professionals

Prepare your practice for the next health threat

Course Dates: CANCELED

Epidemiological skills empower you to better assess pandemic threats such as ebola, COVID-19, treatment resistant bacteria, or other superbugs, as well as recurring risks such as the seasonal flu or vaccine-related conditions.

But, without a background in epidemiology, the scientific literature is easy to misinterpret. And during critical phases of outbreaks or epidemics, misinterpreting the science can have dangerous consequences. This workshop prepares you to provide evidence-based information to patients, clients, and readers.

Session 3

The second day begins with an overview of measures of association and drawing conclusions from the multiple research methodologies covered on the previous day. You will learn how to identify and create actionable plans from odds ratios, confidence intervals, and more.

Session 4

The final session focuses on causality. You will learn the requirements of establishing causation and how to assess health threats using these criteria. You will also learn how to empower patients or clients to achieve effective preventive health.
