Souring On SUCRAs: When Treatment Ranking Goes Wrong

Oct 2022

One of the advantages of network meta-analyses (NMA) is the ability to use findings to draw conclusions regarding the best treatment for a given outcome. The Surface-Under-the-Cumulative-Ranking (SUCRA) is the most common method used to rank treatments in Bayesian NMAs, but it is often misinterpreted and misreported. This webinar will explore what the SUCRA is, demonstrate how it can be meaningfully impacted by network composition (even in simple networks), and suggest corrections to common errors in the reporting of SUCRAs.
