AB For every treatment, there is a true, underlying effect that any individual experiment can only estimate (see Chapter 6, Why Study Results Mislead: Bias and Random Error). Investigators use statistical methods to advance their understanding of this true effect. This chapter explores the logic underlying one approach to statistical inquiry: hypothesis testing. Readers interested in how to teach the concepts reviewed in this chapter to clinical learners may be interested in an interactive script we have developed for this purpose.1
