Massey University College of Health Logo

Meta-analysis has become a major tool in medical and public health research. There are over 30 journal publications every day w ith " meta-analysis" in the abstract or as a keyword. We can rarely make a causal conclusion from just one study. So we need ways to assess causal evidence integrating evidence from several or many studies. Meta-analysis can help us do this.

The workshop will examine the critical role metaanalysis can play in causal inference from health studies. Participants will have a handson experience in conducting and interpreting a metaanalysis using Excel spreadsheets and data from a set of epidemiological studies.
