Epidemiology has been the principal discipline in preparing the grounds for the prevention of infectious diseases, several forms of cancer, and most cardiovascular diseases. However, it has contributed relatively little towards the understanding of causation and prevention of injuries. This chapter presents an approach for teaching general injury epidemiology, covering teaching and learning objectives, teaching contents, and assessing students' achievements.
