Social Sciences and Epidemiology

The relation between social class and epidemiology has been a noteworthy research field since the start of general wellbeing history. Many investigations have distinguished the variations in wellbeing among social classes and built up a few hypotheses, for example, social determination hypothesis and socio-organic interpretation hypothesis. Notwithstanding, in spite of the long history of this exploration field, the impact of social class on wellbeing is not yet completely caught on. The focus of epidemiological research is on infections and deficiencies. In the middle of the 20th century epidemiologists began to look also at common chronic conditions and the great advances have been made in the understanding of the factors affecting the prevalence and risk of such diseases. It examines the prevalence of various diseases within a population and investigates if there is a correlation with, for example, exposure to hormones, infectious agents, radiation, stress or cigarette smoke, and with conditions such as myocardial infarction, lung cancer, obesity, hypertension etc. This knowledge is then used to develop approaches to disease prevention. Important advances have been made by researchers in environmental medicine, occupational medicine and social medicine. It also has an important role to play as the demands for efficiency and cost-effectiveness increase the need for healthcare research. The methodology also makes important contributions to clinical research when investigating treatment outcomes, prognosis and side-effects. More updates can be found at Social Sciences Conferences.
