The nature of diseases and injuries, including the science, population effects, causes, origins, and patterns, are studied within the field of epidemiology. Epidemiologists strive to manage and contain the spread of disease by creating effective policy and educating the public, as the discipline is often related to public health. Epidemiology expert witnesses are often brought into related lawsuits to provide expert opinions on why a health program and/or policy failed to protect an individual or population from exposure to infectious diseases. An epidemiologist may be asked to evaluate infection control measures in an effort to determine the source of a potential failure, the results of which may affect the outcome of a court case.
While epidemiologists have backgrounds in various types of medical studies, such as internal medicine, HIV/AIDS, respiratory disease, hepatitis, and other areas of focus, they all share the same goal of understanding health and injury-related threats by analyzing sets of data and statistics regarding the health trends of various populations.
