Methods are quickly evolving which enable estimates of efficacy of multiple treatments simultaneously or estimates of efficacy in the absence of trials between treatments. At the same time, the Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technology in Health (CADTH) has identified that in estimates of clinical benefit, meta-analysis methods are sometimes not used when they should be, incorrectly done, or not fully and transparently reported.
At this workshop experts will review indirect and mixed treatment comparison approaches to evidence synthesis, how mixed treatment comparison meta-analysis is evolving in Canada, and the status of the development of Canadian guidelines for good research practices for indirect treatment comparisons.
Who is the course aimed at?
Those wanting to increase their knowledge about indirect and mixed treatment comparison meta-analysis, how indirect and mixed treatment comparison meta-analysis is used as a tool for health technology assessment (with a specific focus on Canada) and how indirect and mixed treatment comparison calculations are actually made.
This workshop will include an overview of different types of meta-analysis; demonstrations on how to quantitatively conduct indirect and mixed treatment comparison meta-analyses; practical examples in a Canadian context, and how indirect and mixed treatment comparison are being adopted by researchers, decision-makers, industry, and health care professionals.
