HP 725 - Risk Assessment, Critical Thinking, and Health


The basics of risk assessment as an analytical tool and its application to aid decision making on health issues are discussed. Examples are drawn from uses of risk assessment by health and environmental regulatory agencies, including the EPA, the FDA, the CDC, and others. Alternative techniques of risk assessment are presented. Examples from the literature and popular press are used to illustrate the application of critical thinking in the development of appropriate risk models.
