9780125885607: Statistics in Medicine

This book covers 30% of statistical methods used for 90% of medical studies. It opens with databases from clinical medicine and uses such data throughout to give multiple worked-out illustrations for every method. In contrast to a traditional text, it provides two parts: (I) an introductory text for students in medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, and other health care fields, and (II) a reference manual to support practicing clinicians in reading medical literature or conducting research study. The textbook part starts at ground zero in mathematics and covers only the basic concepts and the most frequently seen methods in biostatistics, following the philosophy that what the student remembers five years after the course is the important issue, not what is forgotten. The reference part is written to allow topic hop-about rather than a required sequence of reading. It is well indexed to find topics and terms. A great effort has been made to make it user friendly and the foreword has been written by VADM Richard Nelson M.D., Surgeon General of the Navy and Chief, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery.
