About this item

Biostatistics for Practitioners: An Interpretative Guide for Medicine and Biology deals with several aspects of statistics that are indispensable for researchers and students across the biomedical sciences.

The book features a step-by-step approach, focusing on standard statistical tests, as well as discussions of the most common errors.

The book is based on the author’s 40+ years of teaching statistics to medical fellows and biomedical researchers across a wide range of fields. Readers will find hyperlinks to free online tests to help novice statisticians perform their own statistical tests.

  • Discusses how to use the standard statistical tests in the biomedical field, as well as how to make statistical inferences (t test, ANOVA, regression etc.)
  • Includes non-standards tests, including equivalence or non-inferiority testing, extreme value statistics, cross-over tests, and simple time series procedures such as the runs test and Cusums
  • Introduces procedures such as multiple regression, Poisson regression, meta-analysis and resampling statistics, and provides references for further studies
  • Presents a vast array of free on-line statistical testing tools which allow readers to practice the procedures learned
