182.613 Exposure Assessment Techniques for Health Risk Management
- Explain the nature of exposure problems in reconstructing historical exposures in occupational and non-occupational settings
- Recognize the implications of sparse and missing data and the choice of the exposure metric on the resulting exposure-response relationship
- Design studies to estimate exposure for prospective and retrospective epidemiological studies and interpret data obtained from such studies
- Use statistical techniques, physical mathematical models, and Bayesian methods to quantify exposures while accounting for temporal and spatial dependence
- Articulate the relationship between exposures and biological outcomes, such as tissue concentrations from pharmacokinetic models
- Critically evaluate exposure assessment strategies in epidemiological studies and risk assessments
