Compare clinical significance and statistical significance. Which one is more meaningful when considering applying evidence to your practice?
Compare descriptive statistics and inferential statistics in research. Please give an example of each type that could be collected in a study that would be done on your nursing clinical issue you identified in previous weeks.
