Product Description Epidemiology for Advanced Nursing Practice guides graduate-level nursing students to understand the basic concepts of epidemiology while gaining and applying statistical conceptual skills. Focusing on the importance of disease prevention and community-centered migration, this text helps students expand their knowledge base while enhancing practical application skills and stimulating research interests. Designed to prepare advanced practice nursing students to meet the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) for Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) standards, this text features expert insights, objectives, critical questions, and references. Topics include the role of epidemiology and statistics in advanced nursing practice, study designs and outcomes, emerging infectious diseases, genetic and environmental epidemiology, the role of culture, nursing in pandemics and emergency preparedness, and legal and ethical issues. About the Author Dr. Kiran Macha was educated as a physician in India. He has practiced medicine in India and the United Kingdom. After earning his MPH, he joined the faculty of the University of North Florida, School of Nursing in Jacksonville where he has taught and managed research projects with Advanced Practice Nursing students in both primary care and anesthesiology. During this period he became convinced of the value of advanced nursing practice in maintaining optimum quality and access to patient care. As the DNP curriculum was developed, the UNF faculty group became increasingly aware that current textbooks in epidemiology were mostly constructed from the viewpoint of medicine and public health. There was a need to create a text dealing with the topics related to epidemiology that would approach issues from the advanced nursing perspective. He chose to establish a group of experts who could fill that need and the concept of this text was born.
