Semester Frühjahrsemester 2024
Angebotsmuster unregelmässig
Dozierende Dorothee Bentz (dorothee.bentz@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt Traditional meta-analytical methods commonly used for synthesizing evidence from clinical trials are limited in comparing two interventions. However, for any given condition there is usually a plethora of alternative treatment options; this has motivated the development of network meta-analysis techniques, which extent usual pairwise meta-analysis for the case when more than two treatments are being compared in the available trials. Network meta-analysis has been the subject of a considerable amount of methodological research in recent years.

The course is designed for healthcare researchers who want to become familiar with the principles of network meta-analysis and their application. A hands-on practical tutorial will be performed in R. Some experience with systematic reviews and meta-analysis, basic knowledge of statistics and basic knowledge of R are required.

The workshop will be held by Prof. Dr. Georgia Salanti, Head of Research Group, Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine (ISPM), University of Bern. Prof. Dr. Georgia Salanti studied Mathematics in Greece, Epidemiology in Belgium and Sociology in the UK. She has a PhD in Statistics from the Ludwig-Maximillians University of Munich in Germany. She is associate professor in Biostatistics and Epidemiology at the University of Bern, Switzerland. She has been working in the field of evidence synthesis since 2003 and has contributed to the methodology of meta-analysis and systematic reviews.
