Fixed vs Random Effects

This workshop offers a detailed introduction to techniques for pooling (meta-analysing) numerical results from trials, especially those identified through systematic review. The statistical basis for meta-analysis and interpretation of fixed and random effects are discussed. Groups will work on a meta-analysis together, extracting data for meta-analysis and pooling the results using a variety of methods.

There is no need for participants to have a prior understanding of meta-analysis, but some familiarity with the concept of statistical significance and confidence intervals would be helpful. This workshop can also be made accessible to A Level mathematics students who have studied some statistics, and are interested in relating their knowledge to real world applications and careers in research.

Workshops can be booked by emailing metasurv@mail.com
