Epidemiology of Rubella
Nur408 - Vulnerable populations, such as pregnant women are susceptible to contracting viral illnesses. Rubella, one viral illness, is a relatively mild disease in children and adults but has devastating consequences on the developing fetus. In this paper, the author will define epidemiology and describe the Epidemiological Triangle as it relates to rubella and Congenital Rubella Syndrome (CRS). Types of epidemiology will also be discussed and various levels of prevention of Rubella and CRS will be examined.
Nur 408 - Epidemiology can be defined as “the study of the distribution and determinants of health-related states or events in specified populations, and the application of this study to the control of health problems” (University of Illinois at Chicago, n.d., p. 2). mkt431 - Epidemiology is important in the study of health and disease in communities because it studies the health related behaviors and the association the behaviors have with social conditions. The study of epidemiology yields health-related information such as who is affected, where they are, and when the events occur. This information can be used to determine the frequency and distribution of diseases throughout the world.
mkt 431 - Epidemiology is used to “monitor the health of various populations, understand the determinants of health and disease in communities, and investigate and evaluate interventions to prevent disease and maintain health” (Stanhope & Lancaster, 2008, p. 245).
