These days a basic knowledge of statistics is essential for good clinical practice, which presents a daunting challenge to health professionals who are not mathematically inclined. This book is aimed at clinicians and students who view statistics as a necessary evil. It covers the summary and presentation of data as might be required for a clinical meeting, audit or the planning of services, and explains how to interpret the p-values and confidence intervals that are reported in medical and scientific journals.
