Assignment: Cancer Screening and Prevention
When determining what evidence to use in practice, I hold the opinion that clinical significance is more important. This is because you will find that statistical significance may be prone to biases. Statistical significance basically indicates that the outcomes did not happen by chance. However, when a researcher fails to account for outliers and confounding variables, then this is bound to bring about questions on the significance of the relationship established by the research (Frank et al., 2021). It is therefore imperative that when deciding on a treatment or intervention that there is evidence of its clinical significance. This is because clinical significance will be evidence that the intervention will bear positive implications on the intended populations.

You should proofread your paper. However, do not rely solely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so
indicates a lack of effort on your part, and your grade will suffer as a result. Papers with a high number of misspelled words and grammatical errors will be penalized. Before submitting your paper, go over it in silence and then aloud, and make any necessary changes. It is often beneficial to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Uncorrected mistakes are preferable to handwritten corrections.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point typeface (10 to 12 characters per inch). Smaller or compressed type, as well as papers with narrow margins or single spacing, are difficult to read. It is preferable to allow your essay to exceed the recommended number of pages rather than attempting to compress it into fewer pages.
Large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are also unacceptable, waste trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced, and have a one-inch margin on all four sides of each page. When submitting hard copies, use white paper and print with dark ink. It will be difficult to follow your argument if it is difficult to read your essay.
