This course will give a broad overview of topics in meta-analysis. Most standard topics in meta-analysis will be covered, such as risk of bias analysis, searching studies, fixed versus random effect models, heterogeneity, publication bias, differences between meta-analysis of randomized trials and meta-analysis observational studies. In practical sessions (STATA, no pre-knowledge required) students will perform a standard meta-analysis by themselves. The course will briefly cover some more advanced topics (bivariate meta-analysis, combining different metrics, network analysis).
