Past Journal Club Topics

What is Relative Risk?

The Relative Risk tells us how many more times likely an event will occur in the intervention or exposure group (EGO) relative to the control group (CGO).


If RR is 1 there is no difference between the 2 groups

If RR<1 means the intervention decreases the risk of the outcome

If RR>1 means the intervention increases the risk of the outcome

What is a P value?

The P value can usually be seen in the Results table within an article and refers to the probability that any particular outcome could have been due to chance. Look at the P value. If it is less than 0.05 it is statistically significant (acceptable).
