Abstract

CASTIEL, Luis David. Considerações acerca da utilização da epidemiologia na avaliação dos sistemas de saúde. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 1986, vol.2, n.2, pp. 184-190. ISSN 0102-311X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X1986000200006.

A discussion about possible reasons why epidemiologic methods are not widely used in evaluation of health actions in Brazil is developed. Firstly, ways by means Public Health evaluation can be performed are presented. Then, the role of Epidemiologg in outcome assessment of health programmes is shown. Finally, restraints and difficulties to perform outcome evaluation of such programmes are considered.
