Considering that a researcher can test at the <p = .05 (95%), p = .01 (99%), or p = .001 (99.9%) level for statistical significance, how would you use these three levels in relationship to risk to patients in implementing the decisions of your research?
It would depend on the type of research, the questions being considered, the tests involved and possible side effects of treatments considered. Can you be more specific? How sure do you want to be in rejecting Ho and avoiding alpha error?
