Description

The epidemiology clip collection looks at research methods used to study diseases in society. The first clip uses lung cancer as an example to explore the critical role epidemiology plays in establishing the cause of a disease. The collection includes two bonus clips which look at the difference between correlation and causation, and reliability and validity. These activity-based clips show teacher Deb Gajic taking her students through some simple experiments to make these key concepts more accessible. Interviewees: Dr Robert MacInnis, Epidemiologist. Teacher Deb Gajic.
