This intensive course will cover all basic and advanced aspects of synthesis of evidence from studies comparing competing treatments for the same health condition. By the end of this course participants will have an understanding of the role and potential of network meta-analysis, the principles, steps and statistical methods involved; the biases that can distort indirect comparisons and network meta-analysis.

This course is aimed at statisticians, epidemiologists and other quantitatively-minded researchers who are involved or may be involved in the future in the preparation of HTA submissions. Knowledge of systematic reviews and the fundamentals of meta-analysis is expected of all participants.

The course will consist of lectures, practical examples and discussions. Participants will gain practical experience in performing analyses in R software and the freely available web application CINeMA.

Key Topics:

  • Assumptions underlying indirect comparisons
  • Statistical methods in network meta-analysis 
  • CINeMA: a framework and software to evaluate Confidence in Network Meta-Analysis 

Course runs from:

Day 1: 10:30 – 18:00
