Objectives of the discipline


1. Understanding the practical application of the main study methods used in epidemiology (observation,
description, analytical);
2. Interpreting the statistical and mathematical indicators (incidence, prevalence, lethality, mortality),
frequently used by the Primary Health Care Assistance;
3. Using the principles of the cohort studies and case-control studies in order to solve the
epidemiological problems which do confront the Primary Health Care Assistance;
4. Epidemiological screening indications and methods. Practical examples for influenza, HIV/AIDS,
Cardio-Vascular Diseases, Cancer (cervix, breast, colorectal), and genetic diseases;
5. Elaborating an emergency epidemiological inquiry, during risk situations for transmittable diseases.
Elaboration, validation, and applying a questionnaire of evaluation of risk factors for the nontransmittable diseases, which do represent priorities for the Primary Health Care Assistance;
6. Knowing the methodology used in the Romanian National Epidemiological Surveillance System for
the non-transmittable diseases.

Analytical programme - Course hours


1. Definition of epidemiology, preventive medicine, and community medicine.
Principal objectives and compartments of epidemiology. Work and research
methods in epidemiology. Prevention and control in Primary Health Care (PHC)
practice.
2. Elements concerning the natural history of diseases. Definition and general
structure of the epidemiological process in transmissible diseases versus nontransmissible diseases. Sources of pathogenic agents; route and modes of
transmission; receptivity; favouring factors; manifestations forms of the
epidemiological process.
3. Identifying risks in Primary Health Care - Causality in epidemiology. The
hypothesis. Epidemiological studies.
4. Neutralising risks in Primary Health Care - The early detection, prevention and
dispensary medical assistance (medical follow-up).
5. Operational activities in Primary Health Care - Epidemiological surveillance.
Planning and organizing a health program. International Health Regulation:
definition, aims, practices methodology.
Analytical programme - Laboratory hours
1. Epidemiological methods which do apply in PHC: observational, descriptive,
analytical and experimental epidemiology: definition, characteristics. The incidence
and prevalence: definition, classification. The mortality and lethality: definition,
classification.
2. Categories of epidemiological study. The cohort and control-case study. Practical
exercises
3. The epidemiological inquiry of transmittable diseases most common in the PHC
4. The epidemiological inquiry of non-transmittable diseases most common in the
PHC
5. The epidemiological screening: definition, categories, programmes. Screening
programmes in transmittable and non-transmittable diseases. Practical exercises:
influenza, AIDS, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and genetic diseases.
6. Structure of programmes for surveillance and control in community medicine.
Practical exercises
7. Program Project of Primary Health Care. International Health Regulation: risk
quantification, practices methodology.
