Confidence in Network Meta-Analysis: How to evaluate study limitations (theory)
This video explains how to evaluate the impact of study limitations (risk of bias) in the results of network meta-analysis.
Confidence in Network Meta-Analysis: How to evaluate study limitations (practical)
This video explains how to use the web-application CINeMA to evaluate the impact of study limitations (risk of bias) in the results of network meta-analysis.
Evidence-based designing of clinical trials using Living Network Meta-analysis
This is a talk presented at the 24th Cochrane Colloquium in 2016 in Seoul as part of the Methods Symposium. It presents, partly, work done within the EU funded project EBAR (MSCA-IF-703254)
A 10 minutes introduction to Network Meta analysis
Network meta-analysis (NMA) has emerged as the new evidence synthesis tool. Clinical papers that use NMA are increasingly published in the medical literature. This is a 10-minutes non-technical introduction to the concept of indirect comparison and NMA.
Combining randomised and non-randomised evidence in network meta-analysis
Observational studies convey valuable information about the effectiveness of interventions in real-life clinical practice and there is a growing interest for methods to include non-randomized evidence in the decision-making process. We then present three alternative methods that allow the inclusion of observational studies in an NMA of RCTs: the design-adjusted synthesis, the use of observational evidence as prior information and the use of three-level hierarchical models.
