TI Methods Speaker Series: Meta-analysis: From Black Box to Clear Box (Colin Dormuth)
Statistical software can enable researchers to conduct analyses by rote processes while evading methodological understanding. In meta-analysis, programs such as the Cochrane Collaboration’s Revman can produce a meta-analysis from simple data entry and the selection of a small handful of parameters. Little understanding is required of either statistical concepts or the methodology which produced the results. Attendees of this workshop will conduct a meta-analysis manually in a spreadsheet. Results will be compared to the same analysis from Revman. The learning example will include discussion of fixed versus random effects, and some statistical consequences which arise from updating and interpreting a meta-analysis.
