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.
