The 2nd Edition of this popular book emphasizes patient and community protection, illustrates the correct use of statistics in health care research for healthcare workers and adds considerable new and updated information. The new edition smooths the learning curve for health care researchers, further de-emphasizing mathematical and computational devices and bringing the principles of statistical reasoning into reach for the uninitiated. New figures, discussion and illustrations fortify each chapter. In addition, three new appendices have been added on the normal distribution, sample size computations, and new requirements for the use of statistics in the courtroom.
From the reviews of the second edition:
"This book presents statisitical principles for health-care workers without previous statsitical training beyond an introductory course in applied statistics. The exposition uses nonmathematical language and rich examples in explaining the correct use of many statistical methods, interpretations of p values, and the results of clinical studies. Although intended for health-care workers, this book will help nonstatisticians better understand statistics in medical research, especially those looking to intepret statistical findings more scientifically." (Peng Huang, The American Statistician, Vol. 61, No. 3, 2007)
"This book's purpose is a nonmathematical access on statistical inference and p-values in health care research as well as on core principles of research design. It is organized in 12 chapters and 3 appendices. Each chapter is accompanied by a conclusion section, a reference list and numerous entertaining real and hypothetical examples. ... In summary, this text book retains the intended nonmathematical readership and provides an entertaining introduction to the principles of statistical reasoning." (Iris Burkholder, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1111 (8), 2007)
The 2nd Edition of this popular book emphasizes patient and community protection, illustrates correct use of statistics in health care research and adds much new material. It smooths the learning curve for researchers, bringing the principles of statistical reasoning into reach.
