Einige Überlegungen zu praktischen Aspekten und Problemen der Forschung zur Krebsrehabilitation

  • Bernard H. Fox


Für die erfolgreiche Forschung im Bereich der Krebsrehabilitation gelten grundsätzlich dieselben Prinzipien wie für die verhaltensbezogene Forschung. Im folgenden werden einige grundlegende Aspekte behandelt, die speziell für die Krebsrehabilitation von Bedeutung sind. Zunächst wird es um einige allgemeine Forschungsprinzipien gehen, abschließend werde ich einige relevante experimentelle Aspekte erörtern und anschließend einige statistische Fragen diskutieren.
