Evidence Synthesis to Derive Model Transition Probabilities (Part I - Systematic Literature Review)
Risha Gidwani, DrPH
Seminar date: 3/14/2018
Description: When there are multiple publications that have evaluated a parameter of interest (such as disease-related mortality or the efficacy of a treatment), one may be able to quantitatively synthesize these estimates into a single input for use in a decision model. This approach to evidence synthesis is called meta-analysis. This lecture will walk researchers through the first part of conducting a meta-analysis: a systematic literature review.
