This short, clear volume describes the epidemiologic concepts and methods for determining and measuring the factors that affect the outcome of illness. It focuses on the impact of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, presenting this information in a clinical context, with emphasis on decision analysis. The book stresses methodology, risk assessment, and the balancing of risk and benefit. A particular strength is the use of real studies from the medical literature as examples. This helpful book will enhance the skill of clinicians who conduct or interpret research into illness outcome.
