Course aims and objectives

By the end of the course participants should be able to:

  • understand what indirect comparisons and network meta-analysis (NMA) are and why they are used;
  • perform indirect comparisons using Stata;
  • perform network meta-analysis using Stata, with continuous and dichotomous data;
  • understand how NMA can be used to pool evidence on complex interventions, and the assumptions required to do so;
  • understand the assumptions made in NMA and use Stata to examine consistency;
  • be aware of different techniques to present the results from NMA;
  • be able to critically appraise a paper that uses NMA.

Who the course is intended for

This course is designed for health services researchers, health psychologists, epidemiologists, statisticians, systematic reviewers and decision analysts.

Prerequisites - Experience of meta-analysis (ideally in Stata), and knowledge of statistical methods including logistic regression. An understanding of research design would also be helpful.
