Statistical Methods in Medical ResearchThe explanation and implementation of statistical methods for themedical researcher or statistician remains an integral part ofmodern medical research. This book explains the use of experimentaland analytical biostatistics systems. Its accessible style allowsit to be used by the non-mathematician as a fundamental componentof successful research.
Since the third edition, there have been many developments instatistical techniques. The fourth edition provides the medicalstatistician with an accessible guide to these techniques and toreflect the extent of their usage in medical research.
The new edition takes a much more comprehensive approach to itssubject. There has been a radical reorganization of the text toimprove the continuity and cohesion of the presentation and toextend the scope by covering many new ideas now being introducedinto the analysis of medical research data. The authors have triedto maintain the modest level of mathematical exposition thatcharacterized the earlier editions, essentially confining themathematics to the statement of algebraic formulae rather thanpursuing mathematical proofs.
