    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.
  • PSI Webinar: HTA Submissions in the UK - Dates: 21 – 21 Jan, 2019

    There is a simple equation for access in the UK: Access = Reimbursement + Uptake. Yet, whilst a simple and logical approach, each component is challenging to achieve.
