Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This is the first book to show the capabilities of Microsoft Excel to teach health services management statistics effectively. It is a step-by-step exercise-driven guide for students and practitioners who need to master Excel tosolve practical health services management problems. If understanding statistics isnt your strongest suit, you are not especially mathematically-inclined, or if you are wary of computers, this is the right book for you. Excel, awidely available computer program for students a nd managers, is also an effective teaching and learning tool for quantitative analyses in health services management courses. Its powerful computational ability and graphical functionsmake learning statistics much easier than in years past. However, Excel 2010 for Health Services Management Statistics: A Guide to Solving Practical Problems is the first book to capitalize on these improvements by teaching studentsand managers how to apply Excel to statistical techniques necessary in their courses and work. Each chapter explains statistical formulas and directs the reader to use Excel commands to solve specific, easy-to-understand healthservices management problems. Practice problems are provided at the end of each chapter with their solutions in an Append ix. Separately, there is a full Practice Test (with answers in an Appendix) that allows readers to test what theyhave learned. Includes 160 illustrations in color Suitable for upper undergraduates or graduate students At the beginning of his academic c areer, Prof. Quirk spent six years in educational research at The American Institutesfor Research and Educational Testing Service.

Note:Statistical Methods for Dynamic Treatment Regimes shares state of the art of statistical methods developed to address questions of estimation and inference for dynamic treatment regimes, a branch of personalized medicine. Thisvolume demonstrates thes e methods with their conceptual underpinnings and illustration through analysis of real and simulated data. These methods are immediately applicable to the practice of personalized medicine, which is a medicalparadigm that emphasizes the systematic use of individual patient information to optimize patient health care. This is the first single source to provide an overview of methodology and results gathered from journals, proceedings, andtechnical reports with the goal of orienting researchers to the fiel d. The first chapter establishes context for the statistical reader in the landscape of personalized medicine. Readers need only have familiarity with elementarycalculus, linear algebra, and basic large-sample theory to use this text. Throughout the text, authors direct readers to available code or packages in different statistical languages to facilitate implementation. In cases where codedoes not already exist, the authors provide analytic approaches in sufficient detail that any researcher with knowled ge of statistical programming could implement the methods from scratch. This will be an important volume for a widerange of researchers, including statisticians, epidemiologists, medical researchers, and machine learning researchers interested in medical applications. Advanced graduate students in statistics and biostatistics will also findmaterial in Statistical Methods for Dynamic Treatment Regimes to be a critical part of their studies

Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The first part of this title contained all statistical tests that are relevant for starters on SPSS, and included standard parametric and non-parametric tests for continuous and binary variables, regression methods, trend tests,and reliability and va lidity assessments of diagnostic tests. The current part 2 of this title reviews multistep methods, multivariate models, assessments of missing data, performance of diagnostic tests, meta-regression, Poissonregression, confounding and interaction, and sur vival analyses using log tests and segmented time-dependent Cox regression. Methods for assessing non linear models, data seasonality, distribution free methods, including Monte Carlomethods and artificial intelligence, and robust tests are also covered. Each method of testing is explained using a data example from clinical practice,including every step in SPSS, and a text with interpretations of the results andhints convenient for data reporting. In order to facilitate the use of this cookbook the data f iles of the examples is made available by the editor through extras.springer.com. Both part 1 and 2 of this title contain a minima amount oftext and maximal technical details, but we believe that this property will not refrain students from mastering the SPSS software systematics, and that, instead, it will be a help to that aim. Yet, we recommend that it will usedtogether with the textbook Statistics Applied to Clinical Trials (5th edition, Springer, Dordrecht 2012) and the e-books Statistics on a Pocket Calculator Part 1 and 2 (Springer, Dordrecht, 2011 and 2012) from the same authors

Note:The first part of this title contained all statistical tests relevant to starting clinical investigations, and included tests for continuous and binary data, power, sample size, multiple testing, variability, confounding,interaction, and reliability. The current part 2 of this title reviews methods for handling missing data, manipulated data, multiple confounders, predictions beyond observation, uncertainty of diagnostic tests, and the problems ofoutliers. Also robust tests, non-linear modeling , goo dness of fit testing, Bhatacharya models, item response modeling, superiority testing, variability testing, binary partitioning for CART (classification and regression tree)methods, meta-analysis, and simple tests for incident analysis and unexpected obse rvations at the workplace and reviewed. Each test method is reported together with (1) a data example from practice, (2) all steps to be taken using ascientific pocket calculator, and (3) the main results and their interpretation. Although several of the described methods can also be carried out with the help of statistical software, the latter procedure will be considerably slower.Both part 1 and 2 of this title consist of a minimum of text and this will enhance the process of mastering the methods. Yet the authors recommend that for a better understanding of the test procedures the books be used together withthe same authors' textbook Statistics Applied to Clinical Studies 5th edition edited 2012, by Springer Dordrecht Netherlands. More complex data fil es like data files with multiple treatment modalities or multiple predictorvariables can not be analyzed with a pocket calculator. We recommend that the small books SPSS for starters, Part 1 and 2 (Springer, Dordrecht, 2010, and 2012) from the same author s be used as a complementary help for the readers'benefit

Date:2012
Publisher:Milano : Springer Milan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book aims at introducing students to the numerical approximation of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs). One of the difficulties of this subject is to identify the right trade-off between theoretical concepts and their usein practice. With tha t collection of examples and exercises we try to address this issue by illustrating standard examples which focus on basic concepts of Numerical Analysis, as well as problems derived from practical applicationswhich the student is encouraged to formalize in terms of PDEs, analyze and solve. The latter examples are derived from the experience of the authors in research project developed in collaboration with scientists of different fields(biology, medicine, etc.) and industry. We wanted this book to be use ful both to readers more interested in the theoretical aspects, and also to those more concerned with the numerical implementation. To this aim, solutions to theexercises have been subdivided in three parts. The first concerns the mathematical analysis of the problem, the second its numerical approximation and the third part is devoted to implementation aspects and the analysis of the results.The book consists of three parts. The first deals with basic material and results provided as useful reference for the other sections. In particular, we recall the basics of functional analysis and the finite element method. The secondpart deals with steady elliptic problems, solved with finite elements or finite differences, while in the third part we address time-d ependent problems, including linear hyperbolic systems and Navier-Stokes equations. Two appendicesdiscuss some practical implementation issues and three-dimensional applications. Each section contains a brief introduction to the subject to make this book self contained

Title:Regression with Linear Predictors [electronic resource]
Author(s): Per Kragh Andersen
Lene Theil Skovgaard
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This text provides, in a non-technical language, a unified treatment of regression models for different outcome types, such as linear regression, logistic regression, and Cox regression. This is done by focusing on the manycommon aspects of these mod els, in particular the linear predictor, which combines the effects of all explanatory variables into a function which is linear in the unknown parameters. Specification and interpretation of various choicesof parametrization of the effects of the covaria tes (categorical as well as quantitative) and interaction among these are elaborated upon. The merits and drawbacks of different link functions relating the linear predictor to theoutcome are discussed with an emphasis on interpretational issues, and the fact that different research questions arise from adding or deleting covariates from the model is emphasized in both theory and practice. Regression models witha linear predictor are commonly used in fields such as clinical medicine, epidemiology, and pub lic health, and the book, including its many worked examples, builds on the authors' more than thirty years of experience as teachers,researchers and consultants at a biostatistical department. The book is well-suited for readers without a solid mathemati cal background and is accompanied by Web pages documenting in R, SAS, and STATA, the analyses presented throughoutthe text. The authors are since 1978 affiliated with the Department of Biostatistics, University of Copenhagen. Per Kragh Andersen is profess or he is a co-author of the Springer book Statistical Models Based on Counting Processes,and has served on editorial boards on several statistical journals. Lene Theil Skovgaard is associate professor she has considerable experience as teacher and consult ant, and has served on the editorial board of Biometrics

The lectures focus on the multiple facets of radiotherapy ingeneral, including externa l radiotherapy (often called teletherapy) as well as internal radiotherapy (called brachytherapy). Radiotherapy strategy and dose management as well as the decisive role of digital imaging in the associatedclinical practice are developed in several articl es. Grouped under the discipline of Conformal Radiotherapy (CRT), numerous modern techniques, from Multi-Leaf Collimators (MLC) to Intensity Modulated RadioTherapy (IMRT), are explainedin detail. The importance of treatment planning based upon patient dat a from digital imaging (Computed Tomography) is also underlined. Finally, despite the quasi- totality of patients being presently treated with gamma and X-rays,novel powerful tools are emerging using proton and light ions (like carbon ions) beams, bound t o become more and more important in patient treatment. These technological developments, going under the comprehensive name ofHadrontherapy, are presented here with special focus on the rational and state of the art of the field. All topics are presented with didactical language and styles, making this book an appropriate reference for students andprofessionals seeking a comprehensive introduction to the field as well as a reliable outlook on the most recent developments

Title:Data Monitoring in Clinical Trials [electronic resource] : A Case Studies Approach

Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Randomized clinical trials are the gold standard for establishing many clinical practice guidelines and are central to evidence based medicine. Obtaining the best evidence through clinical trials must be done within the boundariesof rigorous science and ethical principles. One fundamental principle is that trials should not continue longer than necessary to reach their objectives. Therefore, trials must be monitored for recruitment progress, quality of data,adherence to patient care or prevention sta ndards, and early evidence of benefit or harm. Frequently, a group of external experts, independent from the investigators and trial sponsor, is charged with this monitoring responsibility,especially for safety and early benefit. This group is referred to by various names, such as a data monitoring committee or a data and safety monitoring board. This book, through a series of case studies presented by many distinguishedclinical trial experts, illustrates the complexity of this monitoring process. The edi tors provide an overview of the process and a summary of a multitude of the lessons learned from the cases presented. This book should be useful toanyone serving on a data and safety monitoring board, or planning to do so, for colleagues in academia, indu stry and governmental agencies, and for teaching students in biostatistics, epidemiology, clinical trials and medical ethics.No other text has as extensive a collection of cases which provide insight into the many issues, often conflicting, that must be e xamined before recommendations to continue or discontinue a trial can be made. While depth in statisticalmethods is not required, some familiarity with statistical design and analysis issues in clinical trials is helpful. The cases cover trials which were terminated early for convincing evidence of benefit, or for harmful effects. Caseswith complex issues are also included. This series of cases should provide broad background information for potential m
