A good understanding of medical statistics is essential to evaluate medical research and to choose appropriate ways of implementing findings in clinical practice. The Oxford Handbook of Medical Statistics has been written to provide doctors and medical students with a comprehensive yet concise
account of this often difficult subject.
Described by readers as a ‘statistical Bible’, this new edition maintains the accessibility and thoroughness of the original, and includes comprehensive updates including new sections on transitional medicine, cluster designs, and modern statistical packages. The Handbook promotes understanding and
interpretation of statistical methods across a wide range of topics, from study design and sample size considerations, through t- and chi-squared tests, to complex multifactorial analyses, all using examples from published research. References and further reading are included, to allow deeper
understanding on specific topics.
Featuring a new chapter on how to use this book in different medical contexts, the Oxford Handbook of Medical Statistics helps readers to conduct their own research and critically appraise others’ work.

Reviews from Amazon users, collected at the time the book is getting published on UniedVRG. It can be related to shiping or paper quality instead of the book content:
⭐ Bought this to help me learn about statistical analysis for a clinical
audit I undertook. I’m still a medical student and I’m terrible at maths
but found this book immensely helpful. It not only explains basic
statistical tools in medical research, but it also teaches how to pick
statistical methods based on your type of research, gives suggestions for
what computer software can be used.
⭐ Excellent book. Easy to understand
⭐ The Oxford Handbook on Medical Statistics is a must have and I refer to it
a few times a week as I am analyzing data using R or just planning my
analysis. It’s easy to carry around the product quality is high. It will
not wear down for overuse and its papers will not come off the bind. I like
these so much I have two! One for home and one for the office.In a quick a
compact format you can get all you need to choose the right test and
instructions on how to implement and what to check for before and after
testing. There are examples from literature which are accessible and
useful. There is a section in the beginning that talk about all part so the
research process from proposal to data collection to reporting. The last
two sections are on meta-analyses and a primer on Bayesian methods.
