Practical Handbook of Sample Size Guidelines for Clinical Trials is a concise guide and powerful software utility program that provides a valuable, non-technical blueprint for the design and analysis of survival clinical trials. This text and software allow clinical researchers to write more effective protocols or research grant proposals in a fraction of the time it would take them otherwise. Clinical researchers also gain insight into how biostatisticians analyze trial data and discover what "p-values" really tell them.
If you are a biostatistician or student, this book and software will be an indispensable tool for study design. Furthermore, no other book provides justification for survival analysis results at such an introductory level. The program increases your flexibility because it allows you to browse through various planning parameter configurations by changing one parameter at a time, circumventing the need to re-enter the set of planning parameters.
Practical Handbook of Sample Size Guidelines for Clinical Trials is ideal for biostatisticians, clinical oncologists, epidemiologists, public health specialists, hematologists, and other researchers who need a concise, easy-to-use tool for sample size determination.

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
