1  type II error
The power of a statistical test is the probability that the test will reject a false null hypothesis (i.e. that it will not make a Type II error). As power increases, the chances of a Type II error decrease. The probability of a Type II error is referred to as the false negative rate (β). Therefore power is equal to 1 − β, which is equal to sensitivity.

Don't confuse it with accuracy
The accuracy of the study is different.
It's calculated by the following formula: Accuracy = TP + TN / TP + FP + TN + FN
