This course is aimed at clinicians and clinical scientists who wish to read and understand published NMAs. Although the course is tailored for an infection prevention and control audience, the principles and concepts discussed will be applicable in wider contexts.
The course will be delivered online via Zoom by members of the HIS team with experience in planning and performing NMAs. Participant numbers will be capped to ensure an interactive and audience-led format, with question/answer and practical sessions being integrated into the course programme throughout the day.
Note: this course is not designed to equip participants with in-depth knowledge and skills needed for performing NMA independently.
Participants who have completed this course should be able to:
- describe the objectives of network meta-analysis (NMA) and why it is becoming increasingly prevalent in clinical research
- identify features common to both NMA and pairwise meta-analysis
- identify characteristics and assumptions of NMA that distinguish it from pairwise meta-analysis
- recognize a variety of approaches to performing NMA
- undertake high-level interpretation and critique of published NMAs.
Accreditation will be sought from the Royal College of Pathologists.
