Overview

Applying new technologies, presenting your experience, and, of course, thinking of your current practice in the light of new evidence, needs some understanding of clinical research methodology.

This book is not a textbook, but a brief guidance for clinical research practice. It aims at bridging the different points of view of statisticians and clinicians, but does not replace personal meetings and discussions between both professions at the earliest step of a clinical study. We hope that you find this book enjoyable, easy to read and understand, and helpful for improving your research skills.

Me, the editors, and the authors hope that this book will help you to sort and focus your ideas when setting up a clinical study, and to understand why certain information should be expressed in this or that fashion, how data should be compiled, analyzed, and presented. This book is neither exhaustive nor complete; it just fits better into your daily business. - David L Helfet

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A practical guide to statistics and data management for orthopedic surgeons...a brief, concise, and efficient presentation of the essential knowledge...a unique offering for orthopedic clinicians...a user-friendly, readable book.--Doody's Review
Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This handbook is a practical guide to statistics and data management for orthopedic surgeons. It is not just another textbook on statistics but a brief, concise, and efficient presentation of the essential knowledge about numerical information, study designs, data storage, and analysis necessary for orthopedic surgeons to understand clinical research and be able to interpret research presented in journals.
Purpose: The authors' goal is to help busy clinicians who are committed to patient care to better understand design and data management of clinical research that will, in turn, enable them to create better clinical studies or better understand and use the published literature. The authors are successful in accomplishing these valuable objectives.
Audience: Orthopedic surgeons in clinical practice are the intended audience, yet this will be a great handbook for residents, fellows, and students in training.
Features: The authors are careful to use basic terms and orthopedic examples that make it easier to follow and read than the usual statistics book. They begin with the fundamentals of data, numbers, and distributions, then discuss common errors and uncertainty built into statistical analysis. They then describe issues related to creating a database and analyzing data. The final chapter provides suggestions for optimizing the presentation of the data.
Assessment: This is a unique offering for orthopedic clinicians. The authors have done a wonderful job of creating a user-friendly, readable book that uses language, examples, and terminology that are familiar to orthopedic clinicians. You don't get lost in the usual litany of an extensive statistics textbook. Certainly, this will not replace a complete textbook if that is what you are looking for; however, it will fulfill 95% of the needs of orthopedic clinicians and residents for a fundamental understanding of statistics and how to interpret data presented in journals.
