Chance rules : an informal guide to probability, risk, and statistics by Brian Everitt( Book )

36 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chance Rules tells the story of our appreciation of chance through history and the various ways it impacts our lives. You will read about the earliest gamblers who thought that the fall of the dice was controlled by the gods, as well as the modern geneticist and quantum theory researcher trying to integrate aspects of probability into their chosen specialty. Along the way, the author uses many interesting examples to illustrate various aspects of chance, such as the infamous Monty Hall problem, tossing coins, coincidences, horse racing, birthdays and babies, DNA profiling, health risks, clinical trials, and alternative therapies."--Jacket

Medical statistics from A to Z : a guide for clinicians and medical students by Brian Everitt( Book )

25 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and Chinese and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From 'absolute risk' to 'zero-sum game', this accessible introduction to the terminology of medical statistics encompasses more than 1500 terms all clearly explained, illustrated and defined in non-technical language, and without any mathematical formulae. This user-friendly approach will enable doctors and medical students to grasp quickly the meaning of any of the statistical terms they encounter when reading the medical literature. Furthermore, annotated comments are used judiciously to warn the unwary of some of the common pitfalls that accompany some cherished biomedical statistical techniques. Wherever possible, the definitions are supplemented with a reference to further reading where the reader may gain a deeper insight, so whilst the definitions are easily digestible, they also provide a stepping stone to a more sophisticated comprehension. -- Cover

Clinical trials in psychiatry by Brian Everitt( Book )

22 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mental health problems account for a quarter of all physician consultations, and place an enormous financial burden on society. For this reason, the search for effective treatments in psychiatry continues apace. But as they are developed, it is essential that we have effective and rigorous methods of assessing the benefits and safety of new treatments. The randomised-controlled trial (RCT) is accepted as being the best method for doing this. In order to understand what does and; does not work, mental health professionals' needs to understand how treatments have been assessed and evaluated.; Clinical Trials in Psychiatry is the first book to explain RCTs for mental health professionals. It starts by discussing why we need trials and why they are the best way of deciding if a treatment works. It then describes the different types of trial, how to analyse the results, and how to conduct a trial.; For anyone working in the mental health field, this book will be an essential source of reference, allowing them to make informed decisions about treatment

An introduction to applied multivariate analysis with R by Brian Everitt( Book )

20 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The majority of data sets collected by researchers in all disciplines are multivariate, meaning that several measurements, observations, or recordings are taken on each of the units in the data set. These units might be human subjects, archaeological artifacts, countries, or a vast variety of other things. In a few cases, it may be sensible to isolate each variable and study it separately, but in most instances all the variables need to be examined simultaneously in order to fully grasp the structure and key features of the data. For this purpose, one or another method of multivariate analysis might be helpful, and it is with such methods that this book is largely concerned. Multivariate analysis includes methods both for describing and exploring such data and for making formal inferences about them. The aim of all the techniques is, in general sense, to display or extract the signal in the data in the presence of noise and to find out what the data show us in the midst of their apparent chaos. An Introduction to Applied Multivariate Analysis with R explores the correct application of these methods so as to extract as much information as possible from the data at hand, particularly as some type of graphical representation, via the R software. Throughout the book, the authors give many examples of R code used to apply the multivariate techniques to multivariate data."--Publisher's description
