Dictionary of Pharmacoepidemiology

Bernard Bégaud

ISBN: 978-0-471-80361-4 November 2000 182 Pages


Written by an internationally renowned authority in the field, this is the most complete dictionary devoted specifically to the terms currently used in pharmacoepidemiology. The use of clear and consistent terminology in science has never been more important, and this dictionary, which has been translated from the third edition of a French original, has been reworked to include suggestions made by pharmacoepidemiologists currently using existing versions. It contains revised definitions for nearly all established terms in addition to comprehensive descriptions of new terms and is well illustrated with practical examples. This outstandingly high-quality dictionary will be essential for all those whose work is within or touches upon this field: regulatory authorities, pharmaceutical physicians, lawyers, pharmacists, researchers, evaluators and students.
"Good reference source; likely to enjoy a long life. It's a buy." (Pharmaceutical Physician, June 2001)

"Begaud has assembled this dictionary which contains clear definitions for terms often thrown around with little understanding" (British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, July 2001)

"...translated and adapted from the third edition of Dictionnair de Pharmacoepidemiologie.... It has been substantially revised to take into account comments from professionals using the previous editions." (SciTech Book News, Vol. 25, No. 4, December 2001)
