Suggested answer to exercise: Nurse delivered home exercise programme, 5

Question 5: In Table 2, P values are only given when the difference is statistically significant. The difference for injurious falls is therefore not statistically significant. What can we conclude from this?

Suggested answer

We conclude that there is no evidence that subjects allocated to exercise experience a different rate of injurious falls to subjects allocated to control.

In my opinion it is bad practice not to give P values for all comparisons.
