Item description for Medical Decision Making by M.d. Sox Hal, Marchal A. Blatt, M.d., Michael C. Higgins, Ph.d. & Keith I. Marton, M.d....

Since it was first published in 1988, Medical Decision Making has become the world-wide standard textbook for medical decision making. Written to meet the needs of medical students and experienced clinicians alike, this book is a clearly presented, step-by-step guide to understanding how, through the processes of decision analysis, a physician can reach valid, reasoned conclusions about medical treatment despite imperfect information about the patient. The focus of Medical Decision Making is on estimating probability, measuring the inaccuracy of clinical data, and interpreting new information, then making choices: should the patient be treated, should more information be obtained, or should nothing be done? The authors make extensive use of clinical examples to illustrate Bayesian analysis, formal decision analysis, and basic concepts of how to evaluate the usefulness of diagnostic tests in various situations. The text is supplemented with many illustrations, useful end-of-chapter self-assessment questions, an appendix giving the sensitivity and specificity of nearly 100 diagnostic tests, and a selective annotated bibliography directing the reader to significant articles in the current literature

Reviews - What do customers think about Medical Decision Making?

Simple easy reading  Apr 27, 2001
Having read a number of books in the area of medical decision making, I feel this book by Sox et one of the most useful book on the subject.. It is very readable and provides worked out examples which carry the reader through the steps involved in decision analysis.... With the limited number of books on the subject, I think its a must for people in the field of medical decision making.
