Application of quantitative methods in veterinary epidemiology [Monograph] - 2nd, rev. ed
Noordhuizen, J.P.T.M. \ 2001
veterinary science - epidemiology - animal diseases - quantitative analysis - quantitative methods

This book describes tools which can help in better understanding of disease occurrence and disease patterns. Using such tools will result in more adequate disease control on the one hand, and in sound health care decision-making and preventive action through e.g., risk management on the other. Skills in handling quantitative epidemiological methods have been identified by the World Health Organization in the 90's as one of the domains in animal health care where more training of both professionals and undergraduates is needed. The text is a compilation of short theory lectures and many case study elaborations on quantitative epidemiological methods.

Veterinary epidemiology [Monograph] - 3rd ed., reissued with updatesTable of contents
Thrusfield, M. \ 2007
veterinary medicine - epidemics - epidemiology - animal diseases - infectious diseases - disease transmission - surveillance - data collection - data analysis - clinical trials - diagnostic techniques - simulation models - disease control

Since the publication of the second edition there has been considerable expansion in the application of veterinary epidemiology: more quantitative methods are available, challenges such as the epidemic of foot-and-mouth disease in Europe in 2001 have required epidemiological investigation, and epidemiological analyses have taken on further importance with the emergence of evidence-based veterinary medicine. In this edition: revised and expanded chapters, increased attention given to the principles and concepts of epidemiology, surveillance, and diagnostic-test validation and performance, many examples are drawn from both large and small animal medicine, and from the developing as well as the developed world. This paperback edition includes a new section on risk analysis.
