Epidemiology is the study of disease transmission investigating the dissemination and determinants of health-related states or occasions in indicated populaces, and the use of this examination to the control of medical issues. Each public health specialist ought to be comfortable with the fundamental standards in this definition and how they are valuable.

The study of disease transmission is concerned about the recurrence and pattern of health events in a populace. Recurrence incorporates not just the quantity of occasions in a populace, yet in addition the rate or danger of disease in the population. Deciding the pace of disease events. Epidemiology gives information to coordinating public health activity. The data is utilized when arranging how to control and prevent infection in the community. (Fletcher, Fletcher & Fletcher, 2014)

Use of epidemiology, Count health-related events, describe the circulation of health-related events in the population, Describe clinical examples, and Identify chance components for developing the disease, recognize causes or determinants of illness, identify control as well as preventive measures

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention National Center for Health Statistics, in 2013-2018, information was posted January 2020, discoveries uncover review of Human Papillomavirus virus among grown-up matured 18-26, the percentage who ever received one or more doses of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine increased from 22.1% in 2013 to 39.9% in 2018. The percentage of adults aged 18?26 who received the recommended number of doses of HPV vaccine increased from 13.8% in 2013 to 21.5% in 2018. In 2018, non-Hispanic white adults were more likely than Hispanic adults to have ever received one or more doses of the HPV vaccine. Among adults aged 18?26 whoever received one or more doses of the HPV vaccine, the majority received the first dose between the ages of 13 and 17 years. From 2013 through 2018, the percentage of adults aged 18?26 who reported ever receiving one or more doses of HPV vaccine increased from 22.1% to 39.9%, continuing the previously documented rise in the percentage of young adults receiving HPV vaccination (Center for Disease Control and Prevention CDC, 2020)

Hello everyone, my name is Mariam Garcia. I have been a nurse for about six years. My husband is an active duty Air Force member and currently stationed at Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska. I am enrolled in the MSN track for Family Nurse Practitioner and hoping for a smooth ride. I am very hopeful that my experience with online learning will give me an advantage moving forward. Epidemiology has always been a part of my nursing experience, and I have a feeling it will continue to be. Epidemiology consists of making sure that patients receive optimal care by reducing overall infection risks and focusing on prevention measures as well as on infection control within direct patient care (Fletcher, Fletcher & Fletcher, 2014).

Epidemiology has helped clinicians to answer clinical questions through a population viewpoint on the care of patients and the scientific basis for preventive health care (Fletcher, Fletcher & Fletcher, 2014). A principal assumption in epidemiology is that it can interpret the experience of the entire population based on the evaluation of a representative sample of the population. However, a problem withdrawing such an inference is that the errors in measured data may affect the results of an epidemiological study. For example, the results may be influenced by the play of chance, because of the effects of random variation from sample to sample.

The types of health outcome data used in epidemiological studies consist of death, records, health service records, and disease surveys (Salvi, 2015). These can be assembled into data based on routinely collected records, and morbidity data that is collected for a specific epidemiologic study (Salvi, 2015). Epidemiological studies measure characteristics of populations; therefore, they are consistently subject to bias. When reviewing the National Center for Health Statistics site, I was able to review many great data tools, programs, publications, and topics. Browsing the site, I came across statistics for vision testing among children aged 35 years in the United States (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2019). Data from the National Health Interview Survey showed that childhood vision screenings could deliver early detection of vision disorders and opportunities for subsequent treatment (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2019).
