Teaching Epidemiology

Josep M. Antó

Oxford University Press

The recognition that chronic airway diseases, mainly asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), impose a high burden of health on society, as well as the sustained increase in epidemiological research about the understanding of chronic respiratory diseases, have increased the interest in respiratory epidemiology. This chapter primarily addresses chronic obstructive respiratory disease and asthma and aims to facilitate the establishment of introductory courses and sessions of respiratory epidemiology in a variety of teaching contexts. The chapter includes teaching objectives and the following teaching contents: frequency and burden of disease, disease definition, etiology, genomic factors, natural history, treatment, prevention, and control. Some recommendations about teaching methods and format are also provided.

Keywords:   epidemiology, teaching, chronic respiratory diseases, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
