Description

Informationen zum Autor Manfred Stommel, PhD, is Professor, College of Nursing, Michigan State University, USA. His recent research has focused on the Body Mass Index (BMI), its measurement in large population-based surveys, as well as antecedents and consequences of variations in the BMI. In particular, his research has explored mortality impacts of the BMI and physical activity as well as health service use associated with the BMI. He has been the Principal Investigator, Co-Investigator, or Statistician on 14 NIH- and USDA-funded research projects and has published over 100 articles in refereed journals including Nursing Research, Oncology Nursing Forum, Obesity, and JOGNN, among many others. He co-published Clinical Research: Concepts and Principles for Advanced Practice Nursing (2004). Dr. Stommel was the 2008-2009 Academy Health Senior Service Fellow at the CDC/National Center for Health Statistics. He is a regular reviewer for numerous journals, including Nursing Research, Social Science and Medicine, Preventing Chronic Disease, and Western Journal of Nursing Research.Katherine Dontje, PhD, FNP-BC, is Director of the Graduate Clinical Programs and Assistant Professor/Nurse Practitioner, College of Nursing, Michigan State University, USA. She teaches in the APN program and has an active clinical practice seeing the full scope of primary care. Dr. Dontje has been PI or Co-PI on 12 research projects, including a WK Kellogg funded project on University-Based Nurse-Managed Care and a RWJ-funded project on the Quality of Outcomes from 3 Models of Nurse-Led Primary Care. She is presently a member of an interdisciplinary research team focusing on patient and provider aspects of the electronic health record. She has published numerous peer-reviewed articles on informatics and evidence-based practice for patient in primary care. Dr. Dontje has presented at regional, national and international conferences and has had more than 20 invited presentations. She has received numerous honors and awards, is a member of: ANA, AANP, MNRS, STT, and the Michigan Council of NPs, and has served in leadership capacity for many of them. She serves as a reviewer for Informatics & Nursing and Journal of Nurse Practitioners. Klappentext This comprehensive, graduate-level text for advanced practice nurses and other health care professionals provides state-of-the-art tools that facilitate the reading and interpretation of articles in clinical journals that use increasingly complex statistical techniques. It goes beyond the usual offerings of such texts to address clinically relevant topics in bio-statistics such as survival analysis and evaluation of screening tests. The text emphasizes the importance of understanding the underlying logic of statistical texts and models in order to correctly interpret them and effectively translate them into practice. It will also help readers to choose appropriate statistical methods for conducting their own translational research. With a focus on disseminating information in easily understandable language, the text addresses basic statistical reasoning and four different classes of statistical models. It provides refreshers on the algebraic underpinnings of statistics in the appendices and more complex algebraic derivations in highlighted boxes throughout the text. This includes how to manipulate the exponential expressions and logarithms necessary for logistic and hazard regression models. The book also features clear explanations of more sophisticated statistical models, inference, and analyses. Chapters present examples from current research and multiple exercises designed to reinforce learning. These include both hand calculations and data analysis using SPSS or STATA software. Additionally, data sets for practice...
