As many medical and healthcare researchers have a love-hate relationship with statistics, this practical reference book may make all the difference. It takes examples, mainly from the authors' own research, to explain how to make sense of statistics, turn statistical computer results into coherent information, and help decide which pieces of information to report and how to present them. Presenting Medical Statistics includes a wide range of statistical analyses, and all the statistical methods are illustrated using real data. Labelled figures show the Stata and SPSS commands needed to obtain the analyses, with indications of which information should be extracted from the output for reporting. The relevant results are then presented as for a report or journal article, to illustrate the principles of good presentation. The reader is taken through the various stages of the research process, from the initial research proposal, ethical approval and data analysis, to reporting on and publishing the findings. There are even extensive references for those who wish to find out more about the statistical methods. This is a must for anyone working with statistics in the medical profession.

This book describes the authors’ standard or ‘best’ practices used in writing regul- ed clinical documents for the drug and biologics industry. The fundamental premise of this book is that the end (documents submitted to a health authority) is dep- dent on the beginning (the planning and strategy that go into organizing written documentation). Each regulatory document inherently exists within a constellation of related documents. This book attempts to show the relationships between and among these documents and suggests strategies for organizing and writing these documents to maximize ef?ciency while developing clear and concise text. At all times, and irrespective of applicable laws and guidelines, good communication skills and a sense of balance are essential to adequately, accurately, and clearly describe a product’s characteristics. At no time should the reader perceive these suggestions to be the only viable solution to writing regulatory documents nor should the reader expect that these suggestions guarantee product success. The audience for this book is the novice medical writer, or those who would like to explore or enhance regulatory-writing skills. We assume the reader will have a basic understanding of written communication, but little experience in applying this skill to the task of regulatory writing. Extensive knowledge of science, clinical me- cine, mathematics, or regulatory affairs law is not required to use the best practices described in this book.

Now in its third edition, this highly successful text has been fully revised and updated with expanded sections on cutting-edge techniques including Poisson regression, negative binomial regression, multinomial logistic regression and proportional odds regression. As before, it focuses on easy-to-follow explanations of complicated multivariable techniques. It is the perfect introduction for all clinical researchers. It describes how to perform and interpret multivariable analysis, using plain language rather than complex derivations and mathematical formulae. It focuses on the nuts and bolts of performing research, and prepares the reader to set up, perform and interpret multivariable models. Numerous tables, graphs and tips help to demystify the process of performing multivariable analysis. The text is illustrated with many up-to-date examples from the medical literature on how to use multivariable analysis in clinical practice and in research.
