Provide two different examples of how research uses hypothesis testing, and describe the criteria forrejecting the null hypothesis. Discuss why this is important in your practice and with patient interactions.The research hypothesis can be tested by a one tail or two tail tests. The one tail test is if the researcherknows which way the data will go. “In a two-tailed test, the researcher is looking to determinedifferences between the groups being compared” (Ambrose, 2018) This testing can determine thepositive and negatives between two things. The null hypothesis will show if a hypothesis is true are notor will show that the two variables are not related to each other. This is important in my practicebecause when you have a patient’s with hypertension the hypothesis is if the patient loses some weightand changes there diet the blood pressure should lower. Sometimes you end up with a null hypothesis
