ariel view of university buildings

This one-day workshop is suitable for those who have no previous experience of meta-analysis, as well as those seeking to refresh their skills.
If participants do not already have a basic understanding of statistical techniques, we recommend they also register for the three day course on statistical issues in the design and analysis of research projects.

This workshop will introduce the basic principles of combining binary or continuous outcomes from randomised controlled trials using the statistical technique of meta-analysis. Investigating heterogeneity and the potential impact of publication bias will be discussed. The practicalities involved such as extracting data and interpreting meta-analysis will be explored in small group sessions.
