Abstract
Statistics provides the necessary statistical tools to enable researchers to undertake and understand evidence-based clinical research. It is a practical guide to conducting statistical research and interpreting statistics in the context of how the participants were recruited, how the study was designed, what types of variables were used, what effect size was found, and what the P values mean. It guides researchers through the process of selecting the correct statistics and show how to best report results for presentation and publication. Clear and concise explanations, combined with plenty of examples and tabulated explanations are based on the authors’ popular medical statistics courses.

Abstract
Scientific medicine in Miettinen's conception of it is very different from the two ideas about it that came to eminence in the 20th century. To him, medicine is scientific to the extent that it has a rational theoretical framework and a knowledge-base from medical science. He delineates the nature of that theoretical framework and of the research to develop the requisite knowledge for application in such a framework. The knowledge ultimately needed is about diagnostic, etiognostic, and prognostic probabilities, and it necessarily is to be codified in the form of probability functions, embedded in practice-guiding expert systems.
Contents

Whither From Here? -- 4. Needed innovations of the knowledge culture -- Part III. Medical Science for Scientific Medicine -- 5. Original research for scientific diagnosis -- 6. Original research for scientific etiognosis -- 7. Original research for scientific prognosis -- 8. Derivative research for scientific gnosis -- 9. From gnostic research to gnostic knowledge -- Epilogue -- Glossary.
