Take the fear out of statistics with this straightforward, practical and applied book on the ‘how and why’ of using statistics.

In your profession as a nurse, you’ll be presented with statistics every day: mortality rates, average life expectancy, percentage recovery rate, average remission time, the findings of which drugs work best with which illnesses. In fact, most of your job, the policies that surround it, the treatment strategies, and all the facts described above are derived from the use of statistics.

This book will help you to understand the use of statistics in nursing literature, and show you how to use statistics effectively in answering your own research questions. Case studies throughout show how statistics are applied in nursing research and frequent exercises help you to test your own knowledge as you progress. 

The book is compatible with the latest versions of SPSS – a commonly used statistical package among nurses and other health professionals. It is accompanied by a website where you can practise the exercises in the book online with data relevant to the adult, child, mental health and learning disability branches of nursing (www.pearsoned.co.uk/maltby).
