Practical Biostatistics: A Friendly Step-by-Step Approach for Evidence-based Medicine by Mendel Suchmacher, Mauro Geller

Evidence-based medicine aims to apply the best available evidence gained from the scientific method to medical decision making. It is a practice that uses statistical analysis of scientific methods and outcomes to drive further experimentation and diagnosis. The profusion of evidence-based medicine in medical practice and clinical research has produced a need for life scientists and clinical researchers to assimilate biostatistics into their work to meet efficacy and practical standards. Practical Biostatistics provides researchers, medical professionals, and students with a friendly, practical guide to biostatistics. With a detailed outline of implementation steps complemented by a review of important topics, this book can be used as a quick reference or a hands-on guide to effectively incorporate biostatistics in clinical trials.

  • Customized presentation for biological investigators with examples taken from current clinical trials in multiple disciplines
  • Clear and concise definitions and examples provide a pragmatic guide to bring clarity to the applications of statistics in improving human health
  • Addresses the challenge of assimilation of mathematical concepts to better interpret literature, to build stronger studies, to present research effectively, and to improve communication with supporting biostatisticians
