Statistics in Medicine. Edition No. 3

  • Published: August 2012

  • 738 Pages
  • Elsevier Science and Technology

Medicine deals with treatments that work often but not always, so treatment success must be based on probability. Statistical methods lift medical research from the anecdotal to measured levels of probability.

Statistics in Medicine, Third Edition offers a unique combination of reference information for practitioners and researchers, along with core statistical methods for medical and health care students. It makes medical statistics easy for the non-biostatistician by outlining the common statistical methods used in 90% of medical research and clearly explaining the underlying basics. The book does not require a significant level of statistical knowledge, and provides abundant clinical examples and exercises to reinforce concepts.
