Souring On SUCRAs: When Treatment Ranking Goes Wrong

Oct 2022

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.

On the Validity of Statistical Analyses with Privacy-Preserving Synthetic Data

Sep 2022

This webinar presents a brief tutorial on synthetic data generation, an overview of its privacy preserving properties, and then review the results from studies evaluating the validity of analyses using synthetic data.

Network Meta-Analysis - Special Topics

Sep 2022

The Statistical Methods in Health Economics and Outcome Research Special Interest Group is pleased to present two webinars on Network Meta-Analysis (NMA). The first one is an introduction to NMA by Emma Hawe. The second will cover special topics in NMA by Sofia Dias. Both webinars will be moderated by Gian Luca Di Tanna. The second webinar will feature more advanced content than the first webinar.

An Introduction to Network Meta-Analysis

Sep 2022

The Statistical Methods in Health Economics and Outcome Research Special Interest Group is pleased to present two webinars on Network Meta-Analysis (NMA). The first of two webinars will focus on the terms associated with network meta-analyses, how and why different comparisons are used, and the concepts, assumptions, and limitations associated with NMA. The first webinar is focused on an Introduction to NMA by Emma Hawe. The second will cover special topics in NMA by Sofia Dias. Both webinars will be moderated by Gian Luca Di Tanna.

Distributional Cost-Effectiveness Analysis to Inform Healthcare Decisions

Jun 2022
