Product Description

Product Description

To practice evidence-based medicine, doctors need to understand how research is conducted and be able to critically appraise research evidence. A sound understanding of medical statistics is essential for the correct evaluation of medical research and the appropriate implementation of findings in clinical practice.
Written in an easily accessible style, the Oxford Handbook of Medical Statistics provides doctors and medical students with a concise and thorough account of this often difficult subject. It promotes understanding and interpretation of statistical methods across a wide range of topics, from study design and sample size considerations, through t- and chi-squared tests, to complex multifactorial analyses, using examples from published research. References for further reading are given
for more information on specific topics.
Helping readers to conduct their own research or critically appraise other's work, this volume provides all the information readers need to understand and interpret medical statistics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good 7 Mar 2011
By rdr
Format:Paperback
I bought this book in preparation for the AKT exam.

I like the Oxford Handbook series anyway, and this book doesn't disappoint. It succinctly explains many relevant statistical principles, and has managed to keep my interest longer than other statistics textbooks, which have been rather wordy!

A good purchase, and one that I would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars My goodness it's a well-written stats book 20 Jun 2011
By hopskip
Format:Paperback
Who would have thought I'd be raving about a medical statistics book? Not likely, but I am. It's clear, succinct, easy to read, and small. Fits in your handbag for when you absolutely must carry a medical statistics book around.

Really rather good, written in plain English, a must for anyone involved in medical research. I only wish I had it at medical school, I might have understood things more, and not just winged it on the MCQ.
