Drawing insights from the works of brilliant statisticians, such as Fisher, Neyman, Pearson, Lindley, Birnbaum, Pratt, Raiffa, Good and Tukey, Dr Catalin Tufanaru from the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI), Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Adelaide will present the fundamental issues related to the debate regarding the distinction between conclusions and decisions in quantitative research. The webinar discusses ideas and implications relevant to health researchers, practitioners and policy-makers (no mathematical formulas are presented). ‘Decisions’ and ‘conclusions’ are defined, and their meanings and implications for quantitative research are discussed. Significance testing, hypotheses testing and confidence intervals are examined from the ‘conclusions versus decisions’ perspective. Examples are discussed and suggestions for best practice in quantitative research are proposed.
