Product Description


“The book will appeal to all medical students, junior doctors and researchers in biomedical and pharmaceutical disciplines.”  ( Zentralblatt MATH , 1 May 2013) "Overall, Medical Statistics at a Glance is very useful to students who are aiming to learn basic medical statistics concepts. Clinicians and statistics students can keep a copy of this book as a quick initial reference. This book is highly recommended as an excellent Medical Statistics guide." ( Journal of Biopharmaceutical Statistics, August 2010)

From the Back Cover

Medical Statistics at a Glance provides a concise and accessible introduction to and revision aid for this complex subject. Following the familiar easy–to–use at a Glance format, it leads the reader through a number of self–contained chapters which explain the underlying concepts of medical statistics and provide a guide to the most commonly used statistical procedures.

This new edition of Medical Statistics at a Glance:

  • contains a second colour throughout to enhance the visual appeal
  • presents the key facts accompanied, where appropriate, by clear and informative tables and diagrams
  • features worked examples in each chapter, with emphasis on the interpretation of computer data analysis rather than on complex hand calculations
  • includes new chapters entitled Rates and Poisson regression, Generalized linear models, Explanatory variables in statistical models and Regression models for clustered data
  • has an accompanying website containing supplementary material including an extensive reference list and multiple choice questions (MCQs) with interactive answers for self–assessment.

Medical Statistics at a Glance will appeal to all medical students, junior doctors and researchers in biomedical and pharmaceutical disciplines.
