Introduction to Mathematical Models of the Epidemiology and Control of Infectious Diseases

Imperial College London / School of Professional Development
05.09.2011 - 16.09.2011  London
Since 1990, this course has \"demystified\" mathematical modelling and kept public-health professionals, policy makers, and infectious disease researchers up-to-date with what they need to know about this fast-moving field, taught by individuals who are actively engaged in research and who advise leading public health professionals, policy-makers, governments, international organisations and pharmaceutical companies (nationally and internationally) including on pandemic influenza, SARS and HIV.
Lernziele, Trainingsziele
The course will enable you to understand the key concepts of infectious -disease transmission and control - and the differences with non-infectious diseases - taught by people who apply those concepts every day.
Policy-makers, public-health and disease-control professionals, all who need to apply modern methods of analysis in the epidemiology and control of infectious diseases, in medical, veterinary and conservation contexts
Course participants require only a very basic mathematical ability, as the fundamental principles of infectious-disease transmission behaviour are simple to grasp. Nevertheless, they are very powerful and the clearer thinking they promote often leads to counter-intuitive insights, even just from a model diagram sketched on an envelope, or a simple model in Excel. However, misunderstanding of the key principles is common - and there are pitfalls to trap the unaware - so expert guidance is needed when learning.

We also offer optional free maths refresher day on Sunday 4th of September that some participants may wish to attend to refresh their memories. We shall also be running a free Excel refresher session on Sunday 11th of September.
