Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Direct, Indirect and Mixed Treatment Evidence: University of Gl
Location: Glasgow, Scotland
Dates: 18th-20th April 2012
The Health Economics and Health Technology Assessment (HEHTA) Team at the University of Glasgow are pleased to announce a three day course on conducting systematic reviews and meta-analyses.
Through a series of lectures and hands-on workshops (using Stata and WinBUGS), this course will cover the principles and practice of conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis of a variety of measures of treatment effects. In addition, participants will learn the important aspects of network meta-analysis, going beyond traditional pairwise techniques when comparing multiple treatment options.
The course is suitable for clinicians, health service researchers and other healthcare professionals who are involved in systematic reviews and meta-analyses as a piece of independent work or an integral part of a health technology assessment.
Participants should have knowledge of basic medical statistics. A basic appreciation of research design would be helpful, as would basic knowledge of Stata and WinBUGS. A one day introduction to Stata is available on 17 April for those less familiar with the software.
