Abstract

Acting on results that are not statistically significant is challenging for clinicians. Such results are often interpreted as evidence of lack of association or as useless evidence. We provide a framework for interpreting and applying non-significant results at the point of care using the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) approach.
