The precision can be determined in a rudimentary manner through the p value, which demonstrates how often an apparent estimate of a treatment effect will occur in a long run of identical trials if, in reality, no true effect exists. The p value does not assist clinicians in determining the range within which the treatment effect estimate resides. 8 The confidence interval is a set of values in which one can be confident that the true value of the point of estimate resides. This is an arbitrarily chosen breadth; 95% is commonly used.

Then, one must place the study in the hierarchy between level I and level V evidence (see Chapter 2). 7 Using this three-step approach, this chapter discusses how to critically appraise studies investigating therapy, diagnostic tests, and prognosis.
