Chelmsford, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 18, 2009 -- Doctors at all levels must now understand the content of medical publications so that they can critically appraise new scientific information, to be able to translate this into care of their patients. The difficult aspects of these publications concern study design, methodology and interpretation of results, all of which are taught under medical statistics, many years before doctors have to use the knowledge after qualification.
An additional turn-off factor for doctors is that medical statistics is often taught by mathematicians, to the detriment of doctors who do not want or need to learn formula, but want to be able to use established concepts.
"Statistics for Clinicians" was written by a doctor/statistician 5 years ago, and has been taught at courses in the UK since then. It describes statistical concepts in the way doctors can understand and apply them, and even enjoy them. The limitations of this course were that doctors had to travel to the course and had one âshotâ at the knowledge.
The internet-based course and the DVD-based course allow the doctor to re-learn medical statistics in the comfort of their homes or work, and at their own pace and time. Moreover the material can be assessed many times over. Why travel for one shot at the course, when you can study it repeatedly at your convenience?
