Statistical-methodological seminars with our colleague Matúš continue. However, the extraordinary situation made our meetings virtual and on Monday, 27 April 2020, we jumped head-first into our first webinar. Successfully!
Matúš told us about the basic concepts related to meta-analysis, its advantages and disadvantages (especially in comparison with narrative survey studies) and also outlined more specific issues, such as the causes of different effect sizes or reasons and possibilities of correcting publication bias.
Did you know that until 2018, in the Slovak Central Register of Scientific Publications (containing more than 400,000 records from all fields of science at that time), there were only 16 meta-analyses (including 13 from the field of medicine) from Slovak co-authors?
We are looking forward to meeting him again in a week.
