Statistics and Research Methods for Medical Scientists
Do you have difficulty understanding basic statistics and research methods? Statistics and Research Methods for Medical Scientists is here to help. This book explains statistics in simple terms almost everyone can understand. If you are a student in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, nursing, midwifery, allied health sciences—either at the undergraduate or postgraduate level—medical practitioner, lecturer, thesis supervisor, researcher, or biomedical scientist, then this book is an answer to your problem in statistics. A book such as this has become necessary because the majority of statistics textbooks are full of technical terms, most of which are complicated for those not taking statistics as a major, leading students to avoid biostatistics even though it is a very important research tool. Author Rev. Dr. Charles Antwi-Boasiako understands that deficiency in biostatistical knowledge adversely affects research quality, marking of student theses, and data interpretation. Hence, this book has been written to help health professionals as well as students overcome this deficiency by presenting biostatistics in its simplest form. This textbook is intended for health workers and students. Readers of this book will find it relevant and practical in their fields of endeavor. Enjoy the reading.
