Biostatistics for Practitioners: An Interpretative Guide for Medicine and Biologydeals with several aspects of statistics that are indispensable for researchers and students across the biomedical sciences.

The book features a step-by-step approach, focusing on standard statistical tests, as well as discussions of the most common errors.

The book is based on the author's 40+ years of teaching statistics to medical fellows and biomedical researchers across a wide range of fields.

  • Discusses how to use the standard statistical tests in the biomedical field, as well as how to make statistical inferences (t test, ANOVA, regression etc.)
  • Includes non-standards tests, including equivalence or non-inferiority testing, extreme value statistics, cross-over tests, and simple time series procedures such as the runs test and Cusums
  • Introduces procedures such as multiple regression, Poisson regression, meta-analysis and resampling statistics, and provides references for further studies
Dr. Julien I. E. Hoffman has 40 years of experience teaching biostatistics to fellows in various medical fields. For about 15 years, Dr. Hoffman was a member of the Biostatistics Committee of the University of California and he still does statistical reviews for all the journals published by the American Heart Association.The author ha...
