Right question, right methods, right now

Wednesday, 21st April 2021, 15:45pm-16:45pm

The variety of analytical methods available to Cochrane authors is expanding. However, with this increasing choice comes increasing confusion around the most appropriate analysis for a particular review title. In this session, members of the NIHR Complex Review Support Unit will use real world examples of when a particular analytical approach can be helpful and when the approach may not be suited to the data. In a series of mini presentations we will consider when to use (and when not to use) the following methods: pairwise meta-analysis, network meta-analysis, component network meta-analysis, and test accuracy versus prognosis review methods. Throughout the presentations we will also consider those instances where quantitative analysis may not be appropriate.
