A Practical Approach to Using Statistics in Health Research: From Planning to Reporting 1st Edition

A hands-on guide to using statistics in health research, from planning, through analysis, and on to reporting

A Practical Approach to Using Statistics in Health Research offers an easy to use, step-by-step guide for using statistics in health research. The authors use their experience of statistics and health research to explain how statistics fit in to all stages of the research process. They explain how to determine necessary sample sizes, interpret whether there are statistically significant difference in outcomes between groups, and use measured effect sizes to decide whether any changes are large enough to be relevant to professional practice.

The text walks you through how to identify the main outcome measure for your study and the factor which you think may influence that outcome and then determine what type of data will be used to record both of these.  It then describes how this information is used to select the most appropriate methods to report and analyze your data.  A step-by-step guide on how to use a range of common statistical procedures are then presented in separate chapters.  To help you make sure that you are using statistics robustly, the authors also explore topics such as multiple testing and how to check whether measured data follows a normal distribution.  Videos showing how to use computer packages to carry out all the various methods mentioned in the book are available on our companion web site. This book:

•    Covers statistical aspects of all the stages of health research from planning to final reporting

•    Explains how to report statistical planning, how analyses were performed, and the results and conclusion

•    Puts the spotlight on consideration of clinical significance and not just statistical significance

•    Explains the importance of reporting 95% confidence intervals for effect size

•    Includes a systematic guide for selection of statistical tests and uses example data sets and videos to help you understand exactly how to use statistics

Written as an introductory guide to statistics for healthcare professionals, students and lecturers in the fields of pharmacy, nursing, medicine, dentistry, physiotherapy, and occupational therapy, A Practical Approach to Using Statistics in Health Research:From Planning to Reporting is a handy reference that focuses on the application of statistical methods within the health research context.

Auto-Immunity Attacks the Body: Autoimmune Disease

Auto-Immunity Attacks the Body will present progressive (acquired) diseases associated with dysfunction of the human immune system characterized by an inability to distinguish between self and nonself-components of body systems. Specifically, multiple sclerosis, graft rejection, and rheumatoid arthritis will be compared and contrasted as examples of this type of diseases. A description of the immune system will highlight the mechanisms by which immunity occurs. It will describe the symptoms of auto-immune disorders, how these symptoms change with progression of the disease, and how these symptoms lead to diagnosis. Links between damage to body systems and immune responses will be described in the context of each disease example, focusing on complications of diagnosing and treating these diseases. Commonalities and differences between the causes of auto-immune diseases will be addressed, stressing the limitations of our understanding of these systems. While there are no cures for auto-immune diseases, this book will describe available treatments for auto-immune disease patients designed to slow progression of the disease, and the importance of early diagnosis in treatment. This book will evaluate the prospects for improved treatments that target immune system functions. The book will conclude with a summary of the main points of the book in a way that connects all of the chapters and points toward the future of auto-immune disease diagnoses, treatments, and potential cures
