Evidence Synthesis to Derive Model Transition Probabilities


by Risha Gidwani-Marszowski, DrPH
Seminar date: 6/11/2014

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 process of conducting a meta-analysis from start to finish.
