Meta-Analysis: Combining the Results of Multiple Studies (ADDED FEE) — Professional Development Continuing Education Course
ASA , Health Policy Statistics Section
Meta-analysis enables researchers to synthesize the results of multiple studies designed to determine the effect of a treatment, device, or test. The information explosion and movement toward the requirement of evidence to support policy decisions has promoted the use of meta-analysis in all scientific disciplines. Statisticians play a major role in meta-analysis because analyzing data with few studies and many variables is difficult. In this workshop, we introduce the major principles and techniques of statistical analysis of meta-analytic data. Examples of published meta-analyses in medicine and the social sciences will be used to illustrate the various methods.
