Contents: Cochrane Singapore and SCRI present a two-day course on the systematic review of interventional studies and a two-day course on network meta-analysis.
The two-day Basic Workshop provides the essential guidance of entire systematic review process, referring to the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions. It covers the topics on developing a focused question (PICO method) and effective literature search strategy, assessing risk of bias of studies, conducting meta-analysis using Review Manager and understanding the results (e.g. forest and funnel plots) and heterogeneity.
The two-day NMA Workshop is a mixture of lectures and practical work. The assumptions underlying both pair-wise meta-analysis and mixed treatment comparisons will be critically examined. Special points and precautions in systematic reviewing for network meta-analysis will be discussed. Methods for data-entry, analysis, managing heterogeneity, interpretation and presentation of the results of network meta-analysis will also be covered..
