A natural companion to Outcome Measures in Trauma and Outcome Measures in Orthopaedics by the same editors, Assessment Methodology in Orthopaedics gives practical guidance on how to undertake successfully the necessary research in order to make the correct assessments required for many outcome measures.
The Editors, from both clinical and research backgrounds, have brought together this widely scattered information from experienced contributors and specialists in public health, epidemiology, bio-engineering and anatomy. The wide-ranging contents include, e.g. clinical measurement, informed consent, practical ethical issues, growth and bone age.
* offers clear guidance on how to do research in order to make assessments
* emphasis is placed on the practical application of the subject
* sets out the methods and problems of accurately measuring outcome both in orthopaedic surgery and trauma
