Course textbook

(Vietnamese version with a recommendation letter from MOH, pdf file)

(English version with a new chapter on qualitative data, pdf file, digital book version)
Recommendation message “This book is an ideal training material for doctors, nurses and other health professionals to have comprehensive understandings on epidemiology, biostatistics, and qualitative research – essential for creating evidence based medicine. Designed for health staff without much prior experience in research, this digital book could reach a wide range of health professionals in Vietnam. This book places much more emphasis on practical issues that broadly reflect clinical research. It will definitely help Vietnamese health professionals to capture research skills and to design better studies especially in clinical settings.” (Associate Professor Ho Thi Hien, Hanoi University of Public Health)
