A concise introduction to the study of medication utilization and safety in large populations of people

“I found this book useful and clear, and appropriate for beginners in the world of research and, specifically, pharmacoepidemiology. Students could easily learn from this book if used in a classroom setting, where the professor could use the discussion points and questions at the end of each chapter to evaluate student learning. While it reads like a textbook, it is far from boring or dry. 3 Stars.”–Doody’s Review Service
