Describe what epidemiology is and how it is used in the health professions. ● Identify measures of morbidity and mortality used to study health problems. ● Interpret common measures of morbidity and mortality, including death, birth, and infection rates. Select two entities (such as two hospitals or two countries). Using credible published data, identify the crude death rate, infant mortality rate and the incidence rate from an infectious disease that is common to both entities. Using these data, compare and contrast the entities and predict the health of its population.
