The course is aimed at clinicians, students and researchers. Participants should be familiar with systematic reviews and meta-analysis and have a basic knowledge of biostatistics. Prior knowledge of STATA would be advantageous but not necessary as the software will be introduced to newcomers. Computers with STATA will be provided to all participants at the venue. The workshop will be co-facilitated by an international NMA expert (Prof Dimitri Mavridis, University of Loannina, Greece) together with the Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics.
