From the Publisher:

Provides busy medical students, nurses and doctors with a concise explanation of the underlying principles in medical statistics, yet keeps techniques in the background.

From the Back Cover:

Now in its fourth edition, this book is an updated and expanded version of a best seller in medical statistics. It is a concise, clearly written introduction to statistical terms and methods used in medicine.

Many medical and health science students will have some knowledge of statistics when they take up their courses. However this knowledge is often general in nature and not relevant to a medical environment.  Medical Statistics: A Textbook for the Health Sciences , Fourth Edition provides students and practitioners with a clear, readable introduction to the statistics they will come across in their regular reading of clinical papers. References to real examples and published papers are used throughout as part of the teaching element of the book
