For readers and students who do not intend to run a trial but wish to be a critical reader of the literature, there are sections on the CONSORT statement, and exercises in reading published trials. * Written in a clear, accessible style * Features real examples taken from the authors extensive practitioner experience of designing and analysing clinical trials * Demonstrates the use of R, Stata and SPSS for statistical analysis * Includes computer code so the reader can replicate all the analyses * Discusses neglected areas such as ethics and practical issues in running cluster randomised trials How to Design, Analyse and Report Cluster Randomised Trials in Medicine and Health Related Research provides an excellent reference tool and can be read with profit by statisticians, health services researchers, systematic reviewers and critical readers of cluster randomised trials.
