Summary note
"Statistics in Medicine, Second Edition, makes medical statistics easy to understand and applicable to students, practicing physicians, and researchers. The book begins with the presentation of databases from clinical medicine and uses such data throughout to give multiple worked-out illustrations of every method. The text uses a unique approach, organizing the material into two Parts. Part I is an introductory, core-concepts guide for students in medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, and other health care fields. Part II then provides a reference manual to support practicing clinicians in reading medical literature and conducting research studies."--BOOK JACKET.
