Two titles from the bestselling Oxford Handbook series are available together in this great value pack.Written by biomedical scientists and clinicians to disseminate the fundamental scientific principles that underpin clinical medicine, this new edition of the Oxford Handbook of Medical Sciences provides a clear, easily digestible account of basic cell physiology and biochemistry, and aninvestigation of the traditional piers of medicine (anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology and pharmacology) integrated in the context of each of the major systems relevant to the human body. Cross-referenced to the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine, and thoroughly illustrated, it is theideal introduction to the basic medical sciences for junior medical students, and a perfect revision guide for senior students. To practice evidence-based medicine, doctors need to understand how research is conducted and be able to critically appraise research evidence. A sound understanding of medical statistics is essential for the correct evaluation of medical research and the appropriate implementation of findings inclinical practice. Written in an easily accessible style, the Oxford Handbook of Medical Statistics provides doctors and medical students with a concise and thorough account of this often difficult subject. It promotes understanding and interpretation of statistical methods across a wide range of topics, from studydesign and sample size considerations, through t- and chi-squared tests, to complex multifactor analyses, using examples from published research. References for further reading are given for more information on specific topics.Helping readers to conduct their own research or critically appraise other's work, this volume provides all the information readers need to understand and interpret medical statistics.

Editorial Reviews

"I am a student of the Masters in Public Health. I just wanted to let you know that I have really enjoyed the classes you taught as well as the book that you've written (the oxford handbook of medical statistics). I found the book a breath of fresh air when revising for my exams- theexplanations so clear and concise, straight to the point. Statistics really do make sense when explained like this. Thank you for providing such a useful tool." --Alicia Rosello, King's College London
