Alternatively, epidemiology may be subdivided by type of application or exposure such as: environmental epidemiology, occupational epidemiology, nutritional epidemiology, behavioral epidemiology, epidemiology of medical care and pharmacoepidemiology, among others. Scientific and File Size: 1MB.   The book is not a textbook of occupational epidemiology, nor does it aim to provide a fully comprehensive account of all possible current topics in occupational epidemiology. We hope that it will bring to a readership of specialists and non-specialists just some of the interesting areas in which occupational epidemiologists are active today.

Overview. Occupational epidemiology involves the application of epidemiologic methods to populations of workers. Occupational epidemiologic studies may involve looking at workers exposed to a variety of chemical, biological or physical (e.g., noise, heat, radiation) agents to determine if the exposures result in the risk of adverse health outcomes.
