Editorial Reviews

Fourteen medical researchers (physicians, dietitians, pharmacists, and other specialists) explore what constitutes "the right stuff" of outcomes research, an emerging area distancing itself from the unregulated "barefoot nutritionists." This real-world guide for clinicians in the rigorous study of the clinical and cost-effectiveness of nutrition disease prevention and medical care, with case studies of research led by diversely-licensed successful health care researchers, provides guidance on: getting started in, conducting, and presenting statistical research; preparing grants, papers for publication, and presentations; and professional obligations to subjects.
