Most clinical staff in hospitals feel overwhelmed when they read or hear content that contains statistics.  This open source introductory statistics textbook is published online and provides the reader with a very simple and basic overview of the most common statistical concepts that you will need to better understand any article you read and any talk you hear.

For those of you interested in more advanced statistical concepts, this resource is for you.

How do we gain knowledge from research?  This resource elaborates on the importance of concepts such as randomization and statistical model building, model assumptions and model checking.

How confident are you in your statistical reasoning & literacy abilities?  Do you think you know it all?  Are you up to finding out?  If you want to have some fun, complete this 38-item questionnaire that has been designed to test your statistical chops.  Don’t worry, even if you don’t do as well as you would like, we won’t know who you are as it is an anonymous questionnaire.  Of course that means if you score perfectly, it will have to be a very personal and lonely victory.
