The development of modern epidemiology : personal reports from those who were there( Book )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book marks the 50th anniversary of the foundation of the International Epidemiological Association (IEA). It is a unique compendium by the world's leading epidemiologists of how the field has developed, and how it can be (and has been) applied to the control of common conditions and threats to public health. Five distinct sections guide the reader through the wealth of material: gives an historical account of the concepts and ideas, and current importance of epidemiology to global health issues and to organisations such as the WHO; iIllustrates the advances and contributions to epidemiologic knowledge and the control of disease in specific areas such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, tuberculosis, maternal and child health, non-biologic disorders such as war and disasters, and new infectious diseases; outlines the use of epidemiology in areas such as public health, health services, occupational and environmental medicine, social epidemiology and nutrition; discusses methodological developments such as statistics, information sources, investigation of disease outbreaks and clinical epidemiology; and looks at how the subject has developed internationally, with perspectives on regions such as the Americas, Poland, Spain, Eastern Mediterranean, New Zealand, China, Thailand and Japan
Measurement of levels of health( Book )

12 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At all levels of health measurements can be made of the frequency and severity of each condition. These indicators must be applicable to practical decisions on the allocation of resources, planning and monitoring of health and health-related services, to innovation in such services, and to the evaluation of ongoing services and pro- grammes. Since health can be measured only indirectly, measurements of levels of health will indicate the occurrence of specific di- seases, syndromes, and conditions. This book does not give technical details about measuring specific determinants of disease, but does include discussion of social and demographic structures as they re- late to levels of health. Factors such as the utilization and avail- ability of health services in various population groups are used as proxy measures to help estimate the level of need for certain ser- vices and to define population groups at risk from disease. Medical knowledge is only one of several skills involved in planning, de- cision making and evaluation. An attempt is made here to synthesize the combined contribution of the various professions in their endeavour to develop and analyse comprehensive and effective health systems

Evaluation of health care by HOLLAND W. W. (ED.)( Book )

13 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about concepts and methods of evaluation in health care. This is a relatively new field and the conceptual framework, the methods and the vocabulary are still being developed. The text is divided into three parts. Part One describes the fundamental concepts and their interrelationships. Part Two describes the basic methods. Part Three presents examples of their applications. Throughout an attempt has been made to use a consistent set of terms and a glossary is presented for the sake of clarity. This book should complement an earlier one1 which describes the basic methods of epidemiology in relation to health. The Commission of the European Communities commissioned the Panel for Epidemiology and Social Medicine to prepare both in order to promote better communication and exchange between health-care policy makers and administrators, clinicians, and epidemiologists. They are intended for use at the crossroads of health care management, clinical care, and medical research

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'For five decades Professor Holland has observed the evolution of Health Services Research in the United Kingdom and internationally from a unique vantage point. The unit he created in St Thomas's Hospital led its development and gave him a platform to influence policy at the highest level. In this enthralling and insightful book he takes us on a grand historical tour, charting the progress that has been made in Health Services Research but, as important, pointing out the lessons from the many missed opportunities along the way.' -- Martin McKee CBE, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK. 'This is a thought-provoking, original and incredibly informative study of how health services research can improve both service practice and policy rather than yet another catalogue of disjointed case studies and initiatives. An absolutely essential read for experts and novices alike.' -- Elias Mossialos, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK. 'No-one is better placed to tell the story of health services research over the past 50 years than Walter Holland, a major contributor and advocate. He reveals the cast of characters involved in the scientific struggles for acceptance and the political intrigue required. Unusually for someone who knows where the bodies are buried, he is prepared to share his insights and to exhort today's researchers never to forget that "HSR and its results are a highly emotive political subject".' -- Nick Black, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, UK. 'Reflecting on more than 50 years of personal experience at the interface of epidemiology and health services research, Professor Walter Holland has written a book full of candid and -- often -- critical observations. He always succeeds in seeing the wood through the trees, and this book convincingly demonstrates the value of research in improving health service practice and policy.' -- Johan Mackenbach, Erasmus MC, The Netherlands. 'In his latest opus, Improving Health Services, Professor Walter Holland, a distinguished health services researcher with a long career in recommending health policy on the basis of evidence, takes on the task of defining the key elements of effective health policy research, Its essential multidisciplinary requirements and its optimal but realistic relationship to health policy formulation, implementation and analysis. Few scholars are more qualified to present the history of health services research in the United Kingdom and the United States, the essential elements of sound health services research and to discuss its role in the future of health services in the United Kingdom. It is, therefore, essential reading for scholars in the field and those wishing to pursue a career in the field.' -- Roger Detels, UCLA Schools of Public Health and Medicine, US. This insightful book describes how Health Services Research (HSR) can be developed and used to evaluate, advance and improve all aspects of health services. It demonstrates the need for good HSR to avoid the continuation or development of ineffective or cost-inefficient services. Drawing on his extensive personal experience in the development of HSR, Walter Holland provides examples from the US and the UK to illustrate important lessons for the future improvement of health services. Taking a distinctive approach to describing the purposes and activities of HSR, the book focuses on the significance of close collaboration with those responsible for the delivery and decisions of health policy. The major message is the importance of heeding the findings of HSR so as to develop evidence-based health policy, and to understand and influence the actions of health professionals, managers and politicians. Holland strongly advocates greater use of HSR and emphasises its ability to provide vital evidence on how to improve health services. This highly informative and detailed book will strongly appeal to health service researchers, public health practitioners, clinicians, health-service managers, administrators and health policymakers
