This concise dictionary of essential statistical terminology has been designed specifically with the needs of the clinician and health care practitioner in mind. Avoiding the complex language that is so often a feature of statistics and research methodology, Pocket Medical Statistics provides clear and succinct explanations, clarifying meaning and showing the interdependencies between important concepts.
Now presented in a handy pocket format, this expanded second edition is an invaluable companion for the reading and critical appraisal of medical literature, the latter now widely recognised to be a practical lifelong skill required by all medical practitioners and researchers.
A-Z of Medical Statistics will continue to be an invaluable jargon-free aid to critical appraisal for all health professionals, including undergraduate and postgraduate medical students in all disciplines, particularly those undertaking research projects or preparing for postgraduate examinations that feature a critical appraisal element such as MRCPsych and MRCGP, nursing students and researchers, and public health trainees.
