  1. Occupational and environmental epidemiology - similarities and contrasts.

    Article - En anglais

    There has been considerable growth in the disciplines of occupational and environmental epidemiology in recent years, with both fields having to deal with increasingly complex exposure profiles and adverse health outcomes.

    Environmental and occupational epidemiology as distinct from general epidemiology are compared and contrasted.

    Similarities and differences between the two fields are systematically discussed in terms of epidemiological peculiarities, study design characteristics, sampling procedures, exposure assessment, typical biases, problems in determining causation, ethical constraints, and implementation possibilities for research findings.
