This text provides practitioners with the scientific literacy needed to understand statistical methods in order to increase the accuracy of their diagnoses. It will help readers comprehend how the process of clinical research relates to the scientific method of problem solving. Readers will understand the importance of three key, interrelated tasks involved in a research study: description (why it was done), explanation (what was done and to whom), and contextualization (how the results relate to other bodies of knowledge).
