Veterinary Clinical Epidemiology, 3rd ed. focuses on developing a deeper understanding of epidemiology and exemplifies how an improved capacity for interpreting and critiquing available literature ultimately leads to improved patient care. With access to an ever-expanding number of journals, as well as countless Internet sources, more and more veterinarians are practicing evidence-based medicine. In preparing this edition, Ronald Smith, a highly respected epidemiologist, practitioner, and educator, has entirely updated his earlier work to reflect those changes that have dramatically altered the practice of veterinary medicine over the last ten years. New to this edition : Numerous updated examples of the application of epidemiology in clinical practice, increased coverage of hypothesis testing, survey design, sampling and epidemiologic concepts related to the practice of evidence-based medicine, revised and updated information on diagnostic testing, risk assessment, causality, and the use of statistics. 280 p.
