Evidence-Based Public Health 3rd Edition

The acclaimed textbook for navigating the practice and challenges of public health, now updated and completely revised 

“It should be recommended or assigned to all students in public health.” –American Journal of Epidemiology

The practice of public health would be easier if all the decisions could just be based on science.

The reality, of course, is that many choices have to account for short-term demands, meaning that some policies and programs are rooted in anecdotal evidence or limited resources. In these circumstances, an evidence-based approach — emphasizing available data and analytics while leveraging individual skills and an optimized organizational climate — is a public health practitioner’s best tool for effective decision making.

This fully revised and updated edition Evidence-Based Public Health offers an essential primer on how to choose, carry out, and evaluate evidence-based programs and policies in public health settings. It addresses not only how to locate and utilize scientific evidence, but also how to implement and evaluate interventions in a way that generates new evidence. Practical topics covered in this light include:

· conducting community assessment
· developing an initial statement of issue (and quantifying it)
· using scientific literature and systematic reviews
· creating an action plan and implementing interventions
· evaluating programs and policies

An indispensable volume for professionals, students, and researchers in the public health sciences and preventive medicine, this newly updated edition of the classic textbook empowers readers to identify and apply the most compelling evidence available.

Applied Biophysics for Drug Discovery 4th Edition

The fourth edition gives readers the skills to apply calculus on the job. It highlights the applications’ connection with real-world concerns. The problems take advantage of computers and graphing calculators to help them think mathematically. The applied exercises challenge them to apply the math they have learned in new ways. This develops their capacity for modeling in a way that the usual exercises patterned after similar solved examples cannot do. The material is also presented in a way to help business professionals decide when to use technology, which empowers them to learn what calculators/computers can and cannot do.

You’re Wrong, I’m Right: Dueling Authors Reexamine Classic Teachings in Anesthesia 1st ed. 2017 Edition

This text covers the major controversies and “myths” in each of the major anesthesia subspecialties. You’re Wrong, I’m Right is designed to be an easy and engaging evidence based read that offers the fast-paced give-and-take of a debate between two experts at the top of their game–capturing their full argument, including expressions of humor and displays of temper. Each point of contention begins with a real case, carefully selected to encapsulate the argument. One author then argues the “pro” side and another the “con.” Sometimes a single author may argue both sides. In doing so, the authors highlight the newest evidence and remind us of classic principles that have stood the test of time. At the end of the debate, readers can determine which argument they will use in their clinical practice, and may also consult a final “Consensus” section that identifies the editors’ and contributors’ “picks” of the one best practice in a range of different situations.
