Block 3, 4D08
Meta-analysis has become a major tool in medical and public health research. Based on Google Scholar, so far this year there have been over 80 journal publications every day with "meta-analysis" in their titles. We can rarely make a causal connect 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. Participants will have a hands-on experience in conducting and interpreting a meta-analysis using Excel spreadsheets and data from a set of epidemiological studies. Cost: $50 (including morning and afternoon tea)
