Summary
This text provides students and other health professionals with the knowledge necessary to interpret clinical research articles, design clinical studies, and learn essential epidemiological concepts in an expedient and concise manner. In recent years, there has been an explosion in the volume and complexity of clinical research, highlighting the need for a conceptual understanding of the basic underpinnings of this discipline. Fundamental concepts are presented in a highly succinct format suitable for students with no previous background in epidemiology or statistics
