Resources for Statistical Evidence in Medical Trials.
Some of the material that I used to write this book is available here in web format. The web format is actually the first draft, so the book should be slightly more polished. I have also removed much of the material that was originally here in January 2006 out of respect for the publisher's copyright.
- Chapter 1. Apples or oranges? Selection of the control group
- Chapter 2. Who was left out? Exclusions, refusals, dropouts, and noncompliers in research.
- Chapter 3. Mountain or molehill? The clinical importance of the results
- Chapter 4. What do the other witnesses say? Corroborating evidence
- Chapter 5. Do the pieces fit together? Systematic overviews and meta-analysis
- Chapter 6. What do all these numbers mean? Basic statistics
- Chapter 7. Where is the evidence? Searching for information
You can also view the web pages which originally inspired this book.
Ther are numerous entries in my weblog entries related to my book. Some of these entries appear in the book itself with minor editing, and others represent important topics which did not fit into the overall plan. Still others are just fun things that I have found that you might also find interesting.
