Comparative Effectiveness Research Using Network Meta-analysis
Methods for evaluating comparative effectiveness of competing treatments are not fully developed. Many treatments are introduced in practice, but they are never evaluated against each other. As a result, practitioners are at a loss as to which treatment to recommend. It is, therefore, imperative to fully understand the principles of network meta-analysis and how to use results in the care of patients.
Physicians, nurses, and other allied health professionals.
- Describe when network meta-analysis is an appropriate tool to address comparative effectiveness.
- Examine the fundamental mechanics of conducting a network meta-analysis.
- Interpret the results of a network meta-analysis.
