This invaluable, jargon-free guide to essential medical terminology in an accessible A-Z format is ideal for medical, allied health and biomedical science students and researchers, clinicians and health care practitioners. Avoiding the complex language that is so often a feature of statistics and research methodology, this text provides clear and succinct explanations, clarifying meaning and showing the interdependencies between important concepts. This edition includes enhanced explanations of statistical concepts and methods―including more illustrative content―for greater accessibility. The book makes frequent use of examples from the medical literature, with reference to landmark studies, ensuring clinical relevance. It remains an ideal aid to accompany the reading and critical appraisal of medical and health care literature, now widely recognized to be a practical lifelong skill required by all health professionals throughout undergraduate and postgraduate studies and during clinical practice.
Motivation: This A–Z Companion is intended primarily for medical students and health care professionals seeking to deepen their understanding of the role of medical statistics in answering pertinent questions in the medical and public health felds. It is my hope it will also be useful to those with a more solid background in medical statistics and epidemiology. The book seeks to provide explanations for terms frequently encountered by readers of the medical literature and by researchers, in such a way as to clarify their meaning and applicability, and show the inter-dependency between various important concepts. It aims to establish a connection between the proper treatment of data generated by research investigations and the ability to rely on study results to make impactful and consequential medical decisions. Included terminology relates to research methodology in the context of clinical and epidemiological investigations.
