All analyses will be illustrated using SAS and lectures will be combined with practical sessions in order to reinforce concepts.
The purpose of this course is for students to understand the principles of meta-research and to develop skills in relation to research synthesis, meta-analysis and assessment of bias in biomedical research. It is aimed at those working in clinical and preclinical research.
