The goal of this book is to "be your guide" and say "see here and see there" as the reader becomes skilled in the techniques and analysis of clinical data. This third edition of Clinical Methods has undergone substantial revision based upon feedback from students and other users of the first two editions. These changes enhance the usefulness of the book and help us to achieve our goal of providing clinicians and students with the best current knowledge of the techniques of collecting and using clinical data.

Every effort has been made to ensure that drug dosage schedules within the text are accurate and conform to standards accepted at time of publication. However, as treatment recommendations vary in the light of continuing research and clinical experience, the reader is advised to verify drug dosage schedules herein with information found on product information sheets. This is espescially true in cases of new or infrequently used drugs.
