Samenvatting

Measurement in Medicine 1e editie is een boek van Henrica C. W. De Vet uitgegeven bij Cambridge University Press. ISBN 9780521133852

The success of the Apgar score demonstrates the astounding power of an appropriate clinical instrument. This down-to-earth book provides practical advice, underpinned by theoretical principles, on developing and evaluating measurement instruments in all fields of medicine. It equips you to choose the most appropriate instrument for specific purposes. The book covers measurement theories, methods and criteria for evaluating and selecting instruments. It provides methods to assess measurement properties, such as reliability, validity and responsiveness, and interpret the results. Worked examples and end-of-chapter assignments use real data and well-known instruments to build your skills at implementation and interpretation through hands-on analysis of real-life cases. All data and solutions are available online. This is a perfect course book for students and a perfect companion for professionals/researchers in the medical and health sciences who care about the quality and meaning of the measurements they perform.

Recensie(s)

'... the book covers such a broad range of topics, researchers at any stage of the scale development or assessment process can be expected to find some utility in the advice and excellent examples ... As research on health measurement expands, we expect this book to serve as a helpful companion to the medical and health researcher.' Quality of Life Research The examples and illustrations provided are one of the book's great strengths. Each example seems carefully selected to better describe the measurement topic. It is our experience that measurement issues lend themselves well to graphical illustrations and real-data applications, and this book offers a wealth of both. Finally, an assignment' section follows each chapter that could prove useful in classroom settings. Intended for students, the questions focus on key aspects from each chapter and require a solid understanding of the material covered... As research on health measurement expands, we expect this book to serve as a helpful companion to the medical and health researcher. Brian D. Stucky & Claudia C. A. Pereira, Quality of Life Research
